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.
