Exhibitionism Disorder. There seems to be quite a few people who don't understand what having a private and personal life is but feel the need to show everyone everything about themselves. Quite sick actually.
WMV files were a nuisance since introduction years ago. I went so far as to associate the WMV ext to be opened with a Hex Editor. And now this.... More reason to avoid the files for the plague that they are.
Actually key-segmentation is a very good idea. I have been using something similar for quite a few yrs now. Holding half a key in my mind and the other half in a USB key fob. And I have no idea what the half key is that's held inside the fob. It would be nice to have a mechanism to backup the key that's inside the fob, in as you say, 2 or more parts and in 2 or more countries.
It seems the the officer had already decide that an arrest was gonna be made, just gotta do it, and any pretext was sufficient. Going so far as to spend quite some time search for justification. So it was patently ridiculous justification? So what. In officer's mind the ends justified the means. And they probably counted on qualified immunity to protect themselves from any repercussions.
What Kurt is claiming might be true but I see some credibility issues as well. If a person cries wolf a few times, and they turn out to be false, then who's gonna believe you when you cry wolf again and it is true. "....and later deleted his tweets claiming this....", Ahhh. damn but that really despicable, trying to un-say what has been said.
