Re: Dutch Transport Card Broken

The per-card cost need not be such a big problem.  Singapore has a 
proximity-card-based system.  They use the same card both for the 
long-term cards and for the single-use cards.  There is a S$ 2 (IIRC) 
deposit on the card, which is refunded after the card is used.  Waste 
not want not!

Why bother with all this? There is OTP for gaim, and it works just fine 
(not to mention it comes from a definitely clueful source).

I meant, of course, OTR (off-the-record).  And to think that I was using 
it in another window as I was typing this!


Thanks to Scott G. Kelly for pointing this out.

  All DVD drive manufacturers.  That's why nobody could write a driver for
Linux until CSS was cracked, remember?



It wasn't the mechanism that was secret so much as the key.  CSS was 
supposed to protect someone else's data.  You wouldn't give the key to 
*your* drive away, would you?
