Whenever I’ve listened to somebody give an explanation of RAID, they always emphasize the point that “RAID is not a backup.” It’s a good point to make because people often assume otherwise. I just read an interesting article (also) about a Swedish hacker that set up a bunch of TOR exit-nodes, and sniffed the traffic. That’s right, TOR is not encryption. We all know what happens when we assume, and assumptions are especially unacceptable when making important decisions about security.

I’m sure that I had a lot more to say about this when I stuck this in my draft section almost 3 months ago, but it’s been so long that I think I’ll just be done with it.
