When I was having my offshore
custom boat built, the builder
submitted the deck layup
schedule to an engineering firm. They reported back that it was "overkill".
Since the cost and weight difference between "acceptable" and "overkill" was negligible, the builder
and I agreed that we didn't have a problem with "overkill". I thought about that a few months ago when 10ft waves were breaking onto that deck
While ocean waves don't seem to be any more dangerous than last year, the security situation on the Internet is much worse than a few years ago and it's reasonable to assume that even worse is to come. Interesting piece in the New York
Times today about the Chinese government's very successful attacks and thefts on both government
sites - partly because a top Chinese government
official googled himself and didn't like what he saw.
Jeff, thanks for going for "overkill".
