Secrets on a computer

I accept entitlement to secrets. The problem is, secrets have a way of
getting out...especially through such a medium as this. My point is that
computers are not safe. The Internet is not safe. Secrets need to be in a
safe place.

It's a real problem when there are just too many secrets, after all
there's only so much space for storing them.

How does this relate to either of the groups you posted to?

Wot, newsgroups?

Too right. Mine is like a minefield - packed full of malware just
waiting to be run.

That's why I don't keep them on the computer.

Well, yes. That's why I don't use the left mouse button while browsing
them. I have had the odd "oh shit!" moment but I know what they do and
it's normally just a case of dive into the registry and fix stuff. The
one's I consider more dangerous like viruses which could damage other
files I tend to rename from exe to bin or similar. At no time am I
connected to the net while playing with them and I find that the
majority around today won't run properly if at all on Win2k!

I take similar precautions. ;p
I've found the oh shit moment is the same as when I discover I forgot to
discharge a capacitor ... lol

I've no idea what you're on about.

There appear to be two different people posting as "Bear", or maybe
it's the same person with two personalities. This one is less lucid
and is posting via xsusenet.com in Europe if the headers are to be
believed. The other Bear is apparently posting through news.dotsrc.org
from Cox netspace in the US.

In other words, the imposter bear deserves ridicule.
