Re: AC Stuart Longland Pot, meet Kettle

Just weigh up the risks of getting blown up by some nutjob vs the complete loss of every citizens privacy.

These actions should be balanced, and right now we are not in a civil or world war which would warrant such a hideous invasion of privacy. Many many more people die every day from preventable accidents and health issues or wars. You are being made fearful by the terrorists and are scared enough to just hand our most private lives which have nothing to do with govt away. It will not stop them.

The sooner everyone can by default have encrypted communication the better, it's not even if the current government is malicious or not, (a future one may be) , it's also the fact that governments are generally a bit incompetent and someone will just leave a USB key on a train one day

Re: So now that the recipe for the perfect bacon sarnie has been found.

I'm actually a vegetarian (although I think eating meat is totally natural etc and am not a moss juggler) , and have read this thread with interest.

Best thing to wash a bacon sarnie down with? Why, a cup of strong builders tea of course!

@bdf

most helpful ... thanks for the input. I for one am quite excited by this new spring edition as I use spring and tomcat (but may also use c#, perl or whatever on other days) and want to take both bottles into the shower. There really is no need to get all 'xxx is shit' about it, no need for a religious reaction, just have a cup of tea and calm down ;)
