    With me its not that I have anything to hide, I just don't like the idea of someone looking over my shoulder just because I am using a computer.

    they may record it but come on how many people are on line right now???

    even still they need a court order right? well no one is going through your google searches for monkey sex pics, unless they get a judge to say they can.

    Call up your local Dem-O-crat and start complaing then.
    Personally, I could give a rats a** who's watching me. I do, what I want to do, usally within the law, so bring it on! I'd love to see them try to decipher my searches, just yesterday I spent 3 hours searching "floor plates" "deck plates", "hinged access cover", "electrical supply", "pass through fittings". Anyone know what I'm looking for?
    If they go looking for a list of addresses on people who search "monkey sex", "Al Quieda", "make a bomb", they'd get a list of a billion names. Mabey I want to bomb the mole out of his friggin hole in the backyard. Mabey I'm curious how monkies copulate. It's so hard to determine a persons intent based from searches, I don't care what you say. Personally, I think the government is wasting their time if they want to search through all this crap.

    I'm not so much worried about the government as other people. I use wireless connections all over. Mine, the BR's free downtown network, coffee places, etc. I have a friend who knows a lot more about computers than I and he tells me that if it's wireless, others may have access to your computer. I use Amomizer, Nortons, PGP and others to ensure that I stay safe as possible.

    I just makes sense to me - I lock my truck, my house, I may as well lock my computer as much as possible.

    Some of it is the same debate as the "NSA telephone" crap that is all the rage in the media right now. The Gov't would ignore my searches even if they wer directly watching them because I am not breaking any laws.
