What's with all the NSA stuff already? Your ISP is tired of sending out techs to swap your perfectly good leased router that the tech from india was unable to talk you into resetting, because you would have lost your pirate bay port forwarding setup. Just because the tech from india is following a script, doesn't mean your not stupid.

Sure, but ultimately we are talking about predictive behavior, and oddly enough the problem becomes binary, thusly:
In an easily controlled environment a person will be given 2 options, or choices if you will. One will be relatively innocuous and maybe even related to the subject at hand. The other will be a horrendously stupid choice that may result in damage to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness.
There will be a large warning banner on the top of the screen advising participants: Do not look directly at the screen when making your choice.
Nature insists on allowing for the possibility of humans to correctly interact with her - and bets against them.

FUD? I didn't even know we had a Congressional EMP Commission. I feel much better now. I think we should all vote to re-elect all our congressmen so they can continue their great work. What do the rest of you dumbasses think? Wait for the next election, to get the punchline.

I think it's incumbent on the original project to rename itself BrokenSSL. Just to avoid confusion.
OK, not to avoid confusion, just to give them another chance at adopting a freakin convention held by others. Besides, BrokenSSL flows off the tongue much better than - Steaming_Pile_of_Shit_OpenSSL.

Not if you are counting on the disk spinning. But if you are seriously going through the trouble because your data *is* really sensitive, (even a HIPPA breach is a serious liability), then i suggest to you that all the sections of the disk without holes are pretty much readable. So, the long and short of this is, if you have a real need to destroy data, better not leave it up to the kid with the Ryobi.

thanks for not actually saying anything but succeeding in being a real dick about it. I get in these moods too when conversing with morons who wouldn't know what to think if you unscrewed their heads and filled them in.

but i've come to expect it from the same people that don't believe in God. Most of the advice and sentiment and argument i see here is really lacking on both sides because they worship money. And they don't even know why. just for the record, i prefer being rich. but it's probably due to enjoying what i work for. some of the best times of my life were on a very low budget.
