Hi Thufir!

I am rather busy these days and so am doing little on the Linux
forums.  I read your post since I, like so many others, use Gmail from
Linux.

You were OT for me.  Thanks!

I share your concerns about security.  I am busy downloading Linux
Live Security and Forensics CDs (almost a hobby to me these days -
what a LOT to learn!!!), learning to use virus scanners (the state of
the art is VERY important here), root kit hunters, SElinux and other
policy based tools, sniffers (network security "cameras"), and also
learning to "pen test".  I would recommend that we all do the same.

Thanks Thufir!  Carry on,

Tod
