Hi Linn.2009, Thanks for your question and sorry I didn't respond sooner but I just got out of the hospital this morning. The reason this tip was a contest contender is because it was actually submitted a week before the majority of news stations began reporting it to the general public. If you notice the source I mentioned you'll see my heads up was from the FBI itself rather than the news.
Also, if the US site is down, you can try the Canadian site. It worked earlier this morning when the US site was down.
Just one other thing I can add to the list of things I don't have: DNS, energy, my innocence, my youth, memory, any coherent thoughts and regular bowel movements.
I found this tip on the 9th so it was a little late for me but luckily I already knew about this problem and had checked my computer. I think this was one of the most important tips that I have read on this site in a while. If the one who posted a "thumbs down" wasn't able to get on-line today, do you think he/she would have changed his/her mind about the "thumbs down?"
I can't help but to wonder whether all of the thumbs down votes these past few weeks are coming from E or S (you know who you are) out of spite especially for a tip as important as this one was! Quite a juvenile thing to do.
* A note for those trying to get through to the first 'check your computer' link: If that web page does not display please just keep trying randomly because the website is going to be mighty busy from now through the 8th!
