comment Compress and then encrypt, or vice-versa?
@Olli - not necessarily if the compression scheme adds known text. In the worst case imagine if it put a known 512byte header on the front of the data and you were using a block mode encryption.

comment Proprietary vs open-source encryption/security software
Microsoft is also a US corporation with a lot of government contracts - it would find it very difficult to turn down a request for special access.

comment Can my older computer be connected to a newer 32" Sony Bravia LCD television?
An adapter is fine if it's just a connector issue. Converting VGA to composite video, hdmi or s-video requires a bit more. VGA to HDMI (or v.v.) needs almost a computer!

comment Best way to transfer huge files over internet?

Tried it out, it seems a little slower than remote desktop and you sometimes have to force a redraw. But it does support multiple screens on the destination machine very well

Isn't logmein just a wrapper around VNC - like copilot? Generally VNC hasn't been great over WAN links

One small issue with dropbox on windows. Since it's in the "My Documents" windows thinks it's on the C drive and so any drag to somewhere else on the C drive moves rather than copies. I've had users delete files on shared dropbox when they thought they were making copies. There is no way to share read-only
