I'd almost forgotten that.

I was thinking perhaps it was the Al Quaeda hacking and subsequent CNN direct linking, but I think that was back in 2002, and I think there was a database disaster shortly after that.

I think that was the day that 14,989 decided not to ride at the same time.....and log on here. So kind of a reverse critical mass.

This article was making the rounds on that date, so maybe information leaked out about it somewhere early that morning:
