Unfortunate mishap with Dead Man's Switch, a piece of Windows software to automate embarrassment-saving tasks from beyond the grave: "I went on vacation, and forgot all about the switch," said Kenny LaGuardia, a Web designer from Los Angeles. "When I returned home, the program had posted, 'So I guess I'm dead' messages to all the newslists I subscribe to, and destroyed all my adult entertainment files."
