A Meme That Isn't A Waste of Your Time

Sven-S. Porst challenged me to talk about email encryption (PGP/ S/MIME, or something), and to suggest to 5 others that they do the same… I realize that you aren’t all Mac folk, but it’s reasonably straightforward in Thunderbird, Outlook, Evolution, and several other mailers, so hopefully you’ll give it a whirl.

First, if you’re using Apple Mail, there’s a really friendly guide to getting it set up. Otherwise, the Wikipedia entries for S/MIME and PGP might be worth checking.

The Magic Word:
The two elements in water are hydrogen and ______

“Every group has a couple of experts. And every group has at least one idiot.
Thus are balance and harmony (and discord) maintained. It’s sometimes hard
to remember this in the bulk of the flamewars that all of the hassle and
pain is generally caused by one or two highly-motivated, caustic twits.”
