  3. (Almost) completely off topic but the original computer "bug" has struck
    again. Local radio news has spent the last couple of days reporting chaos
    on a roundabout over the M4 motorway this week because the traffic lights
    had reverted to an inappropriate phasing.

    Investigations have finally diagnosed the problem to a bug - in this case a
    spider, shorting out connections in one of the control boxes.

    Although, as one caller asked, is this correctly diagnosed as a computer bug
    or is it simply a web problem?

    Sounds like a fly in the ointment to me. Or red spider mite.

    If it was a spider, I'm sure all the spinnerets in the traffic
    department will be trying to show it was someone else's fault. :)
