There are two services that I know of which offer truly secure online storage, Wuala and Spideroak. Jungle Disk can be fairly secure, as well. The former two use Java clients, and the latter is native.

Personally, I use Wuala and am pleased with it. There is one hole, though, in that it's possible to state whether a known file is stored in your account; if that's a problem, you could store it in a zip. That's good enough for me, so I use it for synchronization, backup, storage, and file sharing.

+ - Stallman to step down as Emacs maintainer

davids-world.com writes "Richard Stallman is planning to step down as head maintainer of the GNU Emacs project. In an e-mail to fellow Emacs developers, he today asked for candidates to succeed him. RMS wrote the first extensible Emacs text editor in 1975 at MIT's AI Lab. Seen by many as the founder and chief advocate of the free software movement, Stallman has also been actively involved in Emacs' development. GNU Emacs 22, due soon, will be the first major release of the editor since 2001."
