It's amazing that you can say this in a thread talking about this subject. You appear to believe we're still in the last century. Anyone traveling to the US these days is a fool, as Vanderklik's story proves. Perhaps you'll be in line for a big payout from resultant lawsuits, or maybe you'll just end up stranded in an airport when you end up on the no-fly list or your visa is revoked. Capricious officialdom is the rule these days, not the exception.
What kind of an idiot travels to Nazi Germany in 1939?

For such high profile email, send to a mailbox that only the CEO has access to ...
Then you're left with the problem of how to get such self-entitled dinosaurs to accept they need to check their email from time to time. Peons don't even want to do email nowadays, thinking Facebook is bleeding edge tech. Masters of the corporate universe resent being told they have obligations even peons don't want to put up with.
What other FLOSS projects out there are critical to the internet ecosystem, and what are their needs?
OpenBSD is perennially short on funds. Many of their developers are poor and from third world nations and the project needs money to get them to hackathons, which it would be impossible for themselves to fund.
At the least, buy a dvd or T-shirt if that's all you can do. The same is true of many distros and projects. Which ones do you rely on? Research!
I'd also like to buy a TD T-shirt when I have the money to spare, just to thank Mike for all his work and for letting me say this. :-)
Back at ya! WTF does your four chars add to the discussion?!? WTF are you complaining about exactly?!? I agree with him (ahow628). There are so many unsung heroes in FLOSS diligently banging their heads on problems that interest them yet not bothering to toot their horns, it's impossible to know which ones have fallen into funding cracks. How are we supposed to keep up with them all if they can't/won't market themselves?
"And thus, once the weight of lawyers and litigious apparatus enabling them in existence reached the critical mass outweighing that of a small neutron star and the citizenry were convinced there was nothing particularly wrong with it, the Empire of the USA finally collapsed in on itself taking the balance of the human race and the planet Earth with it (as well as most of the Solar system). Of course, this is all conjecture, as we of course have no hardcopy proof left to us to say what really happened, but this is the most likely hypothesis. Thus has it come to be understood that the most powerfully destructive force in the Universe is the combination of a credulous public, politicians up for re-election, plus unrestrained tort law."
Lawyers, as we write, are preparing suits against historians of the future for merely mentioning the existence of Earth and its long dead inhabitants.
Nor is it particularly surprising. He's pretty blatantly, "In your face!", stating that his intention is to run interference *for* the spies and torturers, and is further intent on attacking even a US senator who wants to inform US citizens of its government's illegalities. Feinstein should up the ante and ask the parliamentarian what exactly an oversight committee's job really is.
Burr's a traitor to his people and a toady for the usurpers, at best. A bullet would be too kind for his ilk. I'd cheer on a public lynching, though.
So is there any way to tank this whole TPP democratically?
I'd be more in favor of tanking the USTR. Between "it" and the NSA, I can't decide which is the more obnoxiously imperialistic force of the two. One (NSA) enables the assault of US citizens by over-riding the constitution, while the other enables corporations to assault consumers world-wide.
What a depressing century this's turned out to be. It seems we wasted the last one fighting communism, when we could have allied with the commies to fight fascism. Bastards! It almost seems like the commies were right all along.
Wasn't the whole point of Wall St. to match up investment money with potentially profit generating enterprises? Instead, it's all about dividends and share price, period.
"You're going to waste money, that could be paid out to investors as dividends, on investing in profit generating infrastructure instead?!? Downgrade that company's stock! Sell! Get out before it's too late!"
How anyone can defend the stock market in this day and age mystifies me.
And who has fought harder for the customer against the government and MAFIAA than Google?
Me? Google is required by law to put up with DHS / FBI / NSA BS. By choice, they also put up with MafiAA BS. Their choice. I on the other hand, avoiding G.'s ministrations, am free to diss them all at my leisure.
I'm not a G. hater, just a G. avoider, and no offence intended towards G. I prefer not to go their way, is all.
In the first document from Snowden's stash to detail the spying efforts of our ever-polite and apologetic neighbor to the north ...
Tim, I love your writings, but you guys have got to get over this fiction. It's delusional.
Yes, we're very civilized and polite ordinarily, but you don't want to be anywhere near us once our dander is up. Ask the Netherlanders. They love us to this day for kicking Nazi butt in some of the most horrific battles of WWII. Hell, we did it in WWI too (Ypres).
CSE is looking for people who're looking for "Anarchist Cookbook" crap (how to build a gasoline bomb). Compare that to USA's "troll everybody then hand it to the DEA to try too."
Don't ever believe Canucks will just present their hind quarters to tyrants when threatened. It'll be the last thing you do.
You may've forgotten "Don't tread on me." We never have nor will. !@#$ with us at your peril.
You don't think NK wins by being able to say, "See? Bad people *are* attacking us!" The US gov't is justifying NK's paranoia. The US fell into NK's trap, whether the former had anything to do with hacking the latter or not.
I suspect that the cop was either profiling motorists or may have already known who this guy was, and was just looking for a reason (real or imagined) to pull him over and bust him for drugs.
Or, the cops just want to, as SOP, search anyone and everyone, "probable cause" be damned, because they *might* manage to bust someone if they search everyone. Shades of NSA haystacking.
It is a useless piece of paper. Get used to it. This'll only get worse. You don't live in a country in which gov't is constrained by constitutional rights anymore. You live in a fascist dictatorship. Enjoy what freedom you have before it's taken away from you, which it will be.
Incidentally, Google searches for false-bottom or false-partition encryption yielded very little.
Not encryption, but if you create two partitions on a USB key, the first one FAT-32/vfat and the second one Linux ext, MS Win* won't even see the second ptn when it's plugged in. I wouldn't expect TSA/FBI/DHS/ICE to be using Linux. I'm unaware if this's also true of Apple's OSX.
I'd try searching Schneier's cryptogram archives for that false partition stuff.
