    And sure, getting into a hardened safe can be an extremely time consuming affair as well -- unless you can get the combination. But first they have to know you have a safe.

    Quite a few months back I spent a couple weekends playing with proxies and TOR and various P2P encryption deals just out of curiosity to see how it all worked and what penalties were imposed in terms of speed and usability.  Did that land me on a list somewhere?  Who knows.  But the older I get the less trusting I become... probably a function of being exposed to more and more reports of ingrained malfeasance (though hopefully I'm at least 150 years away from becoming a cloud-shouting, chemtrail-spraying Fox viewer).

    If I look at these agencies in terms of what they:

    • Can and can't do.
    • Should and shouldn't do.
    • Do and don't do.

    I come to the realization that:

    • I dont know.
    • They don't care.
    • [REDACTED].

    I'm on the internet all the damn time, my phone probably makes a better guidance system than those Gulf War era bombs, and I'm sure my Google search profile looks like a case study in multiple personalities.  So be it.  But at least if I ever do find myself with a need to hide something I want to know what I'm up against.

    Chance favors the prepared mind and all that :)
