Actually, the guy they have teaching the 33d made a point of telling
people not to use the insipid term "cyber-terrorism", that it's
ignorant, that E-bay being down does not inspire terror in even the
most timid of nerds. He showed some pictures of casualties of real
terrorism, just in case anyone wasn't sure what it looked like.
For the record, the pictures did not include screenshots of hacked
websites or empty browser windows.
