NSA - Yeap... they CAN see it all!

Wow... well, guess Snowden WAS right. 

Damn... 

Further leaks have revealed an NSA project called XKeyscore that, with a few keystrokes, can give a data analyst access to nearly everything a user does on the Internet – from chat sessions to email to browsing habits.

As Snowden said to the Guardian on June 10, “I, sitting at my desk could wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email.” XKeyscore is how it is done.

Site Updates.

So... I know I have not been updating this space enough and I am really going to start trying.

I have been spending a lot of time on the site working on the back end cleaning up a lot of old posts and a lot of just... junk... which we had enabled from all the work on the site last year (yeah... I know... been a while...).

More later...

Later - Dave.
