    No, I didn't! A few years ago, I was aware that SpiderOak intended to create a canary report, but I didn't realise that they'd implemented it. Given their zero-knowledge methodology, though, I doubt that the request came to anything.

    I have a simple rule. Live by the cloud, die by the cloud.

    I don't trust every implementation, especially those done in javascript. Everyone has a different level of risk acceptance, I suppose.

    Absolutely! It depends on what you use your computer for. Perfect security (to the extent that such a thing is possible) comes at a cost, so it's always a trade-off.

    Hmm, I learned my lesson with touch screens, when a pilot accidentally shut down a fuel pump, just by pointing at it. We avoided a crash thanks to the second fuel pump, but that was the end of our touch screen experiment in avionics.

    That must have been scary!

    On a barely-related note, did you read about this stolen plane? The pilot must have been mentally ill or on drugs.
