"That seems to be enough"

Until you don't upgrade your kernel/sshd/apache and get hit by an exploit. Long password won't help you when there's an application exploit, which if you're using secure passwords, is the exploit you're likely to see.

I subscribe to oss-security which is quite useful in keeping abreast of things, but may be overkill for a home webserver.

There's a pretty simple example that proves you wrong, you even mentioned it in your post: Japan's warning system.

Here's a pretty good article about it: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2059780,00.html

In principle, I think this is a very good idea. I'm not American and I wish we (Canada) had something like this in place, I think it's stupid the US doesn't yet. Everyone here is raging about the privacy / spam concerns, but do you really think that'll end up being a problem? It'll be a one way push and they'll use it for emergency services (I hope). You don't see people turning on the old school TV emergency tone / message for political spam do you?

In today's world of instant communications, it seems silly to not have a way for the government to send out emergency notifications quickly.
