I didn't mean leaving her wireless open, I meant if they access her autologined laptop with her autoauthed wifi, they're pretty much free to use it at that point. Either they have her permission or they've triggered the alarm in which case I doubt they'll browse digg while the police are en route.
Obviously those outside leeching off her broadband are likely get told where to stick it, if they can get past the WPA2, etc.
Baldrick made a nugget of the purest green, IIRC.
Also, the stealth implications are more for aircraft and ships than for people. British camouflage has very little black, mainly greens and browns (for temperate climes at least). If the aircraft absorbs all the radiation and doesn't reflect any back, there's no way of picking it up on radar, much like the current stealth technology, where a big evil aircraft shows up about the size of a large bird.
But it's not easy.
I've been doing it for years. rsync to an rsync server, then ln back in time, so that you have multiple revisions of your files without taking up more space. Or use CVS/SVN/WebDAV/whatever you want.
I am a professional sysadmin. Your mother probably isn't (and most of the Anonymous Cowards here don't seem to be either), though she (and you) can use Time Machine. The point isn't whether or not it's possible, it's how easy it is to use. If you don't need to use Time Machine then don't. You don't have to pay for it either, you can run Linux, be happy, and shut up. The Time Machine fans are fans because they can spend more time doing things they want to do instead of writing backup scripts.
And as for RAID 1, yeah, go ahead, run that. Then delete an important file by mistake (and don't say you never have) and cry. It's not a backup.
It wouldn't be hard at all to write a webscraper that can connect via port 80 to hotmail, gmail, yahoo or any number of free online webmail services, not to mention WebDAV connecting to Hotmail.
Microsoft did have plans to charge a nominal fee to connect to Hotmail using WebDAV (how Outlook connects to Hotmail) but AFAIK they never actually did it.
