    Technology crashing or being wiped out (computer viruses) doesn't scare me. We could survive. Actual viruses is what gets the hair on the back of my neck standing up. Chemical/biological warfare is the area I'm trained in. Some sort of outbreak is one of my worst fears.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    There are lots of ways the 'wheels could come off our buggy'. This is certainly one of them.

    Another update

    http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/2...ion-ar-526269/

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A powerful computer code attacking industrial facilities around the world, but mainly in Iran, probably was created by experts working for a country or a well-funded private group, according to an analysis by a leading computer security company.
