That's your excuse? That SOLO-boy wasn't actually sitting on a chair in the US when he waltzed through (and I agree completely here) 'wet paper bag security' - and boasted "I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels.”

No excuses needed. In this case they *stole* minutes, whereas McKinnon (I presume that's who you mean by 'SOLO-boy' {note the personal epithet, a sure sign of a small mind}) didn't actually steal anything; merely showed up the US military sysadmins as being utter clueless numpties.

(Icon for the forthcoming seppie raid if we refuse to extradite)
