freitasm: What? "Like the fist of an angry god."


As in William Gibson:

"Operation Screaming Fist," which planned on infiltrating and disrupting Soviet computer systems from ultralight aircraft dropped over Russia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuromancer'

It has become short-hand on The Register for 'cyber warfare', referring to the fact that nobody really knows what such a term means and it might all be fictional anyway.
