Computer whiz is in court for hijacking city's network.A San Francisco employee who's also a computer whiz made his first court appearance this morning on charges that he hijacked the city's new computer network, and locked officials out of confidential files.

Terry Childs is accused of being a disgruntled employee who refuses to give up the password, so now officials can't get into the different areas he locked.

Fixing it could cost the city millions of dollars.
