Interesting report.  Back in the "old daze" (-I dunno, '90 perhaps) I 
used to test viri on a secondary computer.  I'd run whatever prog with 
the virus in it, record the effects, then clean and restore any damaged 
system, etc., files (-it was easier back then.)  This one virus actually 
made the hard disk heads go from one end to the other at like 1000 times 
a second; you could hear 'em a-scratchin'.  Anyway, everything was going 
along just fine until the computer unexpectedly crashed.  Never did 
figure out why but I don't experiment with software anomalies anymore.

Contrary to popular belief, it is believable.
