In reply to Katherine Noyes
I don't remember who said it, or exactly how it is phrased, but there's a quote out there, something like, "Anything built by a (wo)man can be understood and taken apart by a (wo)man)."

And, from John F. Kennedy:
"There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction."

To put a little fear into the hearts of all you who are basking in a sense of false security:

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MAGIC about the Linux and UNIX operating systems which conveys upon them greater security than any other operating system.

The magic stopped when Merlin died.

--a guy who used to teach OS design.

Where do you stand in the Net neutrality debate?
The FCC's plans to roll back the Net neutrality rules will be good for business.
The Internet is an essential utility, and all users should get equal access.
I oppose Net neutrality because I have conservative views.
I favor Net neutrality because I have liberal views.
The controversy is overblown -- the Internet will be fine either way.
I have no idea what Net neutrality means to me personally.
