    NEVER put anything you don't want the rest of the world to know on a network connected computer. Online banking is great until someone intercepts your acct number and PW and you wake up the next morning with a ZERO balance in your accounts. ALso does not matter how tight your security is..... there is someone out there working hard to crack it. IMO the best security for tech is to just plain not put anything out there that makes you vulnerable. LOL Learned this lesson the hard way :)

    A kid in their 20s once told me "I don't see how you people lived before the rise of modern technology." I often wonder how we are living in this technology where nothing is real except the consequences.

    aardbewoner judge a human on how he act,not on look and talk.

    Biggest problem is the click and paste programmers,the use third party programs that use third party programs.
    And guess that if there is ever a long internet blackout many will die,why simple there phone do not remind them to go shopping and the one that do go shopping find the store empty as supply truck doesn't drive.
