How many PCs did he damage or destroy?

None. No hardware was physically damaged AFAIK by the release of the
worm. No lives were lost as a direct result. The systems that were
invaded suffered software problems, but were all capable of being
restored. No doubt that it costs time and money. See my previous posts
about automobile recalls.

Please take this to another list, like thechat, where it is more
appropriate. Gosh! (channeling Napoleon Dynamite)

<tip type="List Etiquette">
There are tons of mailing lists available on the net, each with a
specific purpose. Even with that being the case there are some basic
rules posters should follow....

1. Make sure your post is appropriate for the list in question.
JavaScript questions to a PHP list will most certainly get you flamed.
2. Because it's bad.
   Don't top post.
3. When responding to a post snip the relevant parts for your response,
it will read much more cleanly.
4. Ask smart questions http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
5. STFW, RTFM and STFA before posting. People that are on lists like to
know that you tried to help yourself before you posted. Remember, the
folks on lists like this who help you get paid just as much as you do to
be here.
