Data-center worker sabotages Calif. power grid
Denison pleaded guilty in court to hitting the "emergency power-off" switch, and said that he was unhappy with his employer at the time. Denison had originally been charged with sending an e-mailed bomb threat the day after the incident that read: "Hey, at one point I respected you...you have a new kid. So this is only because of him. Get out before the timer expires. Not long now. Take care." No blackout occurred as a result of the incident, but 20 computer specialists were required to repair the damage, according to the newspaper. Denison is due to be sentenced on February 29.
David Meyer of ZDNet UK reported from London.
