I gotta disagree with you bud. An entire generation of folks were inspired by the Apollo program to dream and become todays scientists/engineers etc. The world NEEDS lofty goals like this. I think that too many folks focus on "What NASA got us" and not on the value of the less tangible items (inspiration and willingness to push the envelope of human acheivement).

2.5 million requests over the course of a day is a drop in the bucket for a large scale enterprise site. Sure, you would expect to see reasonable protections in place, but without some sort of prior knowledge (or dumb luck) it would be extremely difficult to find this bug (hence the two year window)... ----- Angels and ministers of grace defend us! -- Willie S.
