Would each of you take a few moments to jot down the history of
when the bug hit you, when you got news of patches to keep it out,
when you eliminated all copies of the worm, times & names of
other significant discoveries/discoverers, etc?  Before this all
slips from our minds, I'd like to coordinate a global history
of how this thing hit and how we beat it.

If you lost and files, tell me that too.  Figures on numbers
of infected machines, highest single load, etc will all
be much appreciated.  Once I collate it all, I will circulate
the master history back to everyone who contributes information
for it.
