New York Times virus report strangely viral

Whacked again, or did we just forget to publish the story?

We know not what this portends, but as yet another virus scare hits, the New York Times' rapid response team seems to have rapidly responded. On the front page of today's (you'll have to register to read it, but it's free) the NYT this morning had the somewhat minimalist headline "NYT Article". Click on it and you get here. This is fixed now, but earlier it consisted of two Compaq banner ads and the headline "Here goes the headline!!!" According to the URL it seemed to be intended to be an article about viruses, to wit, 11virus.html. When the NYT finally got the story up, content/archive/84-doody, it was a virus piece by the redoubtable John Markoff. Hacked again, or finger trouble? ®
