I'm on keto for a year off-and-on as of Thanksgiving. About calories-in-calories-out; when you do keto you will naturally eat a reasonable amount. I don't weigh my food or count calories at all, and yet I've lost over 60 pounds. I don't starve myself either. I still enjoy cooking and food in general.

It matters what we define as "computer". A whole generation who grew up on bootstraping Free Unix OSes and reading code from the various IBM PC magazines of the 80s literally build the INTERNET and the companies around it. It was a virtue of necessity, but a still a point to consider. Kids today are not exposed to these sorts of things without outside intervention.

You once said, "secure software only happens when all the pieces have 100% correct behavior." I was wondering if you could elaborate on this in the sense of shipping a product every 6 months and dealing with all the mess that upstream code may send your way. How much work is it integrating various "components from outside compliers" and how crucial is this process in creating a secure system?

The longer the title, the less important the job.
