    Hi folks,
    	We were discussing on the Early Bird Developers list that none of
    us have seen any Code Red scans since September 30th.  This can only mean
    one of four things: 
    	1.	Code Red has "gone to sleep,"
    	2.	Code Red committed ritual seppuku and rm'd every box it
    		previously infected,
    	3.	Nimda has taken over all previously infected Code Red
    	4.	All the automated intrusion attempt notices finally paid
    		off and affected sites have finally shut their infected
    		systems down.
    	While I'd like to believe that the silence is due to option #4,
    experience leads me to believe that options #1 and #2 are most likely, and
    option #3 is a close runner-up.
