Wow, this could ruin your day. Here's a story at the-times.co.uk about the London Stock Exchange getting taken down for over seven hours. Even worse, it happened on the last day of the tax year, a day normally jumping with investors looking to buy or sell to save money on their taxes.
It seems that some sort of software glitch "corrupted share price information sent to professional traders before the market opened." Rather than allowing trading on bogus information, they shut the mother down.
I think Bill Gates could take advantage of this if he called up the DOJ and said "London was just a little demonstration for your benefit. Drop the lawsuit, or Wall Street is next!"
