Why is this considered acceptable? Get physical access to my iPhone (for example - Android is probably the same?), good luck getting in.
Sure, with a PC there's a few things that are a lot more difficult to secure (e.g., the boot process) but throwing hands up in the air and giving up because of physical access is a cop out.
Hand me your Iphone, I'll get in... There ARE ways.
Not everyone has someone who raised them to be assertive! So this "Oh, just refuse to be a victim!" is complete bullshit.
I don't know what world you live in, but in mine I have a responsibility for a lot of what happens to me. You don't go out on an ice covered lake until the ice is thick enough or you don't get to complain about falling in. You don't speed though school zones and complain when a kid walks in front of your car.
There are times you cannot avoid being a victim because the situation is out of your control, but there ARE times when you CAN avoid it. One should be wary of situations where risks are being taken and protect yourself, slow down in school zones, don't walk on ice covered lakes and in this case don't send nudie pictures to your professor when he tries to pressure you into it.
But instead of empowering women and encouraging them to be assertive we get folks like you who want to claim they couldn't help it and thus are not responsible in anyway for being a victim. Next you will tell me that the shoplifter couldn't help it, or the mass murder isn't responsible for his behavior because of how they where raised. I'm sorry, but this doesn't wash with me. Adults are adults and should be held responsible for their actions and these women victims where in part responsible for allowing themselves to be victims in a situation where they clearly could have avoided it. Be a bit more assertive and don't be a victim all the time.
Don't get me wrong, this professor is largely to blame for his actions in seeking out and manipulating these women, but they wouldn't have been easy targets had they been a bit more assertive and wouldn't have been victims today had they just said no to the pervert.
There are a number of services that will store your data for you and it's well encrypted. Unless you are a confirmed cheapskate like me, and don't mind the headache of actually performing backups, encrypted online is the way to go.
If online doesn't float your boat or if you really think somebody will be interested enough to break into your stuff, then do what I do. I first back everything up to my NAS, then I backup the NAS to three hard drives. One drive is stored at the in-laws house and gets swapped every time we visit, One is stored in my file cabinet and gets swapped every weekend with the last one that stays in the server and gets a snapshot backup every few days. The NAS is built on OpenMediaVault and has a Raid 5 array with a hot spare. The NAS has a SATA drive bay that I can just push in a bare drive (2.5 or 3.5).
I use "rsync" to push all my data from the various windows and Linux boxes I'm backing up automatically to the NAS, so I end up with a minimum of three copies of all backed up data (the original on the original host, and two in the RAID array) I'll have four copies once the NAS is backed up, and FIVE copies once we visit the In-laws. Overkill, I know. However, it's worth it given that I happened to loose a few years of pictures once and my wife about came unglued. I'm NOT doing that again.
Yea, always a good policy to disrespect the people who are charged with protecting you and your stuff... There are a few officers who abuse their authority, but most really are out to protect and serve. May I suggest you think about being grateful? We really don't pay them all that much considering the risks they take everyday.
Oh I don't know....
I had every cop on duty in the small town I live in show up at my home once. What where they looking for? Some kids playing with guns during school...
It turned out to be some neighbor who called to complain about my kid playing with the kids across the street (both home schooled) and their arsenal of bright blue and orange nurff guns that shot orange foam darts about 15 feet, the day before.
They showed up with all three squad cars and 5 officers, right after lunch to let us know we where violating a non-existent curfew law.. What a waste of time and resources.
I can see some of the molecular gastronomy folks doing some odd things.
Perhaps, but given the possible sources of the acid used, I'm going to avoid eating an egg treated with it.
I think I can speak for her when I say, "bugger off scumbag!"
If that doesn't work for you, the 12 Ga shotgun in the gun safe should suffice to hold you at bay until the police arrive.
