BERLIN - In the end, police discovered the source of the Sasser computer worm, which in recent days shut down Finnish banks, the British Coast Guard and millions of computers worldwide, in the homemade computer of an 18-year-old. Acting on a tip from software giant Microsoft, police raced into the northern German village of Waffensen, near Bremen, on Friday to search the home of a technical school student-programmer and hacker. By yesterday, the student had confessed, experts had reviewed seized materials and the case was seen as a wrap.

RELATIONS between China and the U.S. are more complex than either admits. On Wednesday, former Sen. James R. Sasser presented credentials as U.S. ambassador in Beijing. This ended a harmful eight-month void caused by the irresponsible delay in confirmation engineered by Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C. During it, Chinese spokesmen had been uttering threats on everything from Taiwan relations to trade disputes.On Thursday, a Chinese rocket was to launch a U.S. corporation's communications satellite, no matter what the two regimes were saying.

BEIJING -- After more than four days inside the U.S. Embassy here, Ambassador James R. Sasser finally emerged this morning to express remorse over the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade and optimism that Sino-U.S. relations will survive despite last weekend's tragedy."It's terrific to be outside of the embassy," said Sasser, adding that he had not seen any protesters this morning. "We're delighted to have all of this behind us."The streets in the tree-lined neighborhood two miles east of Tiananmen Square had been practically empty all night except for police, some Chinese residents and the occasional Western journalist.

A week of major frustration for Navy's basketball team ended in typical fashion at Alumni Hall. At Liberty on Thursday night, the Midshipmen lost when Maurice Watkins drove the length of the court to score the game-winning basket with three seconds remaining, and, yesterday, Southern Methodist's Jeryl Sasser hit a running one-hander from the lane with 3.7 seconds to go for a 66-64 Mustangs win before 1,369. Navy (4-4) had one last opportunity to salvage a win after trailing virtually the entire afternoon, but Chris Williams' three-point attempt fell short.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Playing without their top scorer yesterday, the BayRunners nearly pulled off their third road victory of the International Basketball League season. Instead, New Mexico's inspired second-half defense pushed the BayRunners to their 14th consecutive loss, 102-98. "It was a pretty good ballgame," said BayRunners coach Terry Truax, whose team took control early, jumping out to an 11-3 lead. "New Mexico's playing very well." The Slam, which never led until the second half, tied the score for the first time at 41 after Jason Sasser capped a 6-0 run with four unanswered points.

Andrew Sasser is a prime example why cross country runners never stop or slow down until they cross the finish line. The River Hill junior did not place in the top five on his own team, but Sasser's 21st-place showing helped the top-ranked Hawks nip No. 3 Wilde Lake for the Howard County boys championship at Centennial in Ellicott City yesterday. River Hill junior Sergiy Zubko won the boys individual crown, and Atholton sophomore Alison Smith collected her second straight county girls title.

WASHINGTON - A new Internet worm spreading worldwide attacks computers with certain Microsoft operating systems and causes no apparent damage, but closes down the operating system and sends it into a re-boot loop, two U.S. computer security firms said yesterday. The Sasser worm "breaks into your computer and then attempts to break into others. It chooses its victims randomly," said Alfred Huger, senior director of engineering at Symantec, based in Cupertino, Calif. The virus affects computers operating Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP, but not Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me or Windows NT, according to Symantec.

Chesapeake softball coach Don Ellenberger didn't have to wait very long for an answer to a burning question. Wondering whether his team could hit the ball as well as it could field it, Ellenberger watched the fifth-ranked Cougars score five runs in four innings en route to a 5-0 victory over No. 9 Mount de Sales in the season opener for both squads yesterday in Pasadena. Chesapeake's seven-hit attack did not come against All-Metro second-team pitcher Jessica Taylor - who is nursing a pulled right hamstring.

Usually, when two teams go to overtime, one is happy to get there and the other feels it should have won in regulation. Three times earlier this season, the BayRunners were the team feeling it should have won in regulation, and eventually lost. That trend didn't change yesterday against New Mexico, as the BayRunners gave up a 10-point fourth-quarter lead en route to a 111-107 overtime loss to the Slam before 3,871 at Baltimore Arena. The BayRunners had been playing some of their best basketball of the year until about five minutes remained in the fourth quarter, when the Slam went on a 15-5 run led by Jason Sasser and Andre Perry.

New York. -- The 42nd president of the United States had an upsetting beginning. He settled into the nation's big chair, then leaned back with his feet up -- and tipped the darned thing right over. It happens to the best of them; no one knows how to be president or knows of a retraining program for that job.The republic for which he stands is not going to collapse under the weight of gays in the Army, and it could have survived an attorney general who cut a few corners on her way to the top. Neither of those things is new -- well, the ''her'' part is new, and maybe that's what was most important about the Zoe show.

In his inaugural post-game interview, new BayRunners coach Terry Truax talked of his team's high intensity, effort and attitude for four quarters. And he was right, except Truax forgot to mention the level of play, which was pretty high for 3 1/2 quarters until New Mexico forward Jason Sasser took over in the final minutes, leading the Slam to a 94-87 victory last night in front of 2,758 at Baltimore Arena. "I couldn't be more pleased with the effort and enthusiasm," Truax said. "As a coach, that is all you ask for."
