The proper way to do it is to have your CAs sitting on a non-network connected computer sitting in a secure location, with as few individuals having access as possible. Obviously that's not 100%, as the NSA could still show up with a warrant, but you're going to know when you've been compromised, which is, really, the whole point behind proper key management.

Come on, mods, how can this be "insightful"?? Are you not aware that the keys are needed to set up any communication; and that it is exactly the requirement for a CA to be online? If you want to mod up, the best could have been "funny"

This article and this discussion and this article claim that standard procedure can be worked around. Showing pay stubs, offering to pay three to six months' rent up front in states that allow it, or seeking a shorter lease term will make the landlord more likely to feel like filling a vacancy.

"This site is gone. It's not worth the trouble," explained the site's creator, who insisted race-had-nothing-to-do-with-it. Not to excuse the at best ill-conceived 'Ghetto Tracker,' but why was there much less outrage from the press when the USPTO gave IBM a patent on adding surcharges to your auto insurance premium when a GPS device reports that you drove into an area in Big Blue's bad neighborhood database? Or when Microsoft was granted a patent on walking directions that avoid crime-ridden neighborhoods? Or when Google was charged with issuing a bad neighborhood caution to walking directions? When it comes down to it, how different is 'Ghetto Tracker' from Google's patented system and method for storing and providing routes, which proposes to 'remove streets from recommended directions if uploaded route information indicates that travelers seem to avoid the street' (routes that 'traverse one or more high crime areas,' explains Google, 'may be less appealing to most travelers')? In spirit, aren't both really kind of all about using tech to avoid Martin Luther King Boulevard? Does omitting the word 'ghetto' make the tech giants' patents non-racist?"

Speeds up? Sure, I'll grant you that, but is it necessary for advances to happen? Not at all. The Reformation and the Renaissance happened in spite of the internecine warfare of the time, not because of it. Would it have taken longer if military research hadn't funded some of the scientists? Sure, but it almost certainly would have happened. Goddard, Von Braun and Korolev would still have plugged away year after year on rockets without the bottomless pit of military funding, and their successors would have gone to the moon instead.

BTW, in spite of the Pentagon's propaganda internetworking was already under way well before DARPANet. A former boss was an intern when her boss and a few others got their DEC to talk to the (IIRC) the HP mainframe at U of Colorado and the IBM at U of California, letting him get rid of two of the four dumb terminals on his desk. Salescritters saw what they had done and sold the idea to DARPA (at which point they had to start all over from scratch).

Much because I never promised to bring anything, and the debate you are having is not the same as the one I am. You completely ignore or misunderstand it. We could debate the answers, but which ones? Let me try for one last time, just for my own curiosity. Let's take for example your criteria for proof. No matter how reasonable you are, if we keep asking you "why, how and what" over and over again, you will eventually get to a point where you will say something along the lines of "the question is silly/meaningless." Or "That is self evident/obvious", or perhaps even an "I don't know, but if we don't assume that nothing works." The interesting thing here is people with different belief systems arive at different places here. Their criteria for proof is no more or less arbitrary than yours. The problem is, when you fail to grasp that and apply your arbitrary criteria (or indeed beleif system) to an arbitrary concept or statement from another, you find it unreasonable. For example, how do you know Christianity (or indeed any religion of your choice) does not work within it's own world view? In point of fact, they do work quite well. Sure there are areas of intersection and agreement with yours, but this only serves to muddy the waters further. Or take this argument. You seem to be under the impression that my goal here is to defend the faith. You respond accordingly, and complain when I don't, which I find more than a little surprising for one who claims to be reasonable.

Clearly all the years of talk of security and encryption has accomplished is to lull many of us into a false sense of security. (Much like meeting with the TSA at the airport.) That false sense has kept many of us from asking the hard questions and really thinking about the weaknesses of the whole setup... which, as we are seeing more and more clearly, is rotten to the stinking core.

Good. Thinking about it all is good, and so is talking about it.

I think (based on limited research I just did) that it's reasonable to say most gun owners are NRA members.

There are approximately 4 million NRA members and approximately 80 million gun owners.

I'm a gun owner and strongly anti-NRA. I support strong background checks, gun restrictions (caliber, rate of fire, and magazine capacity), and closing the private sales loophole (iow, requiring background checks in all situations).

Why? Do you have any evidence that any of those things reduce crime? Not feelings or theories, evidence.

I do not advocate hunting except in certain circumstances (and I don't eat meat anymore which is part of that) or teaching children to shoot.

Not teaching children to shoot is a very bad idea, especially if you have a gun in the house. Keeping the guns away from the kids makes them mysterious and attractive, and also means that when the kids finally manage to get hold of one they don't know how to handle it safely. I've never, ever seen a news story about a kid who'd been shooting regularly accidentally shooting himself or a friend. It's always the kids who haven't handled guns.

Kids are very capable of understanding what guns are and how to use them, and of properly respecting them. Give them a little safety education and take them shooting. It'll make them safer... and they'll have fun and it's a great bonding opportunity.

...trying to arm schoolteachers. Both would be funny...

Why is that? What is it that you expect to happen if schoolteachers are armed? And why has it not happened in the decade that Utah schoolteachers have been armed?

Therefore, instead of likely to each insurance professional and re-keying the information needed to acquire your on line quotes, you simply enter the information once, preserving you bags of time!

But think about cost? Absolutely, if on the web insurance prices are not received direct from the insurance (or guarantee) agent's website then they will be more expensive? In fact, the reality is that they will not! Specialist website websites manage most of the management and advertising for each insurance agent displayed therefore saving these insurance companies a packet.
