Netflix tells us that there's been "no change" in the way it handles VPNs, so you shouldn't have to worry about the company getting tough any time soon. With that said, these blocking errors started showing up in the past few weeks, so it's not clear what would have prompted them.

I think you mean Sillicon

silicone:
Any of a class of synthetic materials that are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms. Such compounds are typically resistant to chemical attack and insensitive to temperature changes and are used to make rubber, plastics, polishes, and lubricants.

Comment: Save it to write once media too. (Score 1) 161

I would also add that this should be done with a "write once" kind of storage back. This way we have some small assurance it was not modified.

You could go even further and keep a running log on the same medium that had an md5 of each previous content item which was then md5'd with the current.
This seems (to me at least) like it would provide a verifiable trail that shows the written contents were not tampered with.

Would this kind of scheme me useful? or am I missing something obvious?
