Yop. Good "whatever" from portugal.

Facts: admins from data-centers are bound by contract to their company. 
If some data is stolen and nobody gets caught... it's stolen and nobody 
gets caught... (recusive one, insert "deepness" factor, the rober gets 
robed etc...)

A contract is just a piece of paper, and "word" given that the admins 
won't do no bullshit... and that's the bottleneck of internet security : 
access to hardware in data-centers.

Now I don't want to say "data center admins" are all bad, I say "they 
can turn bad"... So "no you'r not paranoid", it's a fact, data is often 
stolen "by anonymous guy/girl inside"... now what ? encrypt or just 
don't publish anywhere.

Keep a computer "off the grid" for your Precisous data. Unconnected and 
hidden ? why not. Data has turned the new gold... maybe... I don't 
know... for me the ideas are gold... so I keep them on paper or on 
github/gitlab like my "anti-loose-phone" : 

Thanks Cecilia for this cute e-mail.

Wear a mask made with a t-shirt at least !

Any face "barrier" is good.

Take care all. My french machine is connected h24 on IRC. Let me a /msg 
meta_4 if you like to interact with "this". ;>

Over and out ! Your turn !
