hi ya simon

i dont mean to scare ya but...

i'd venture to say ... 95% of security is just people management ...
and 5% is implementing a techie solution

- 90% of all security issues is internal ... not from outside the internet


Thank you for your guidelines, though I fear they will not affect me 
since I'm alone with my best friend in this business...  and he knows 
nothing about linux and network.  All I have to fear comes from the 

you forgot to include *yourself* in the "internal [cr/h]ackers"
        - rm -rf /  will always be an important [security/backup] lesson :-)

        - all the "security stuff" affects you... even if its only you
        and your own machine and nobody else in the house/bldg
