>> 4. it was not supposed to get as far as it did, but it escaped and went wild >> because of bugs. I tend to concur; it looks as if this program was intended to propagate itself, but (1) not at the rate at which it did [in fact, its high speed led to its detection; if it had proceeded slowly, it might not have aroused suspicion for some time, and (2) it wasn't finished. The code shows signs of ongoing, incomplete development. Perhaps we were all lucky that it "escaped" before it was finished and released. ---Rsk
