Re: Need Directions?

Atleast none of those 4 were her fault. Could you imagine the insurance premium?

I'm mostly ok now. I'm ok if I'm on a familiar highway (whereas before, I'd get panicked even on a very familiar highway). If I get on a highway that I am not familiar with however, I get a little freakish.

Re: Need Directions?

Maybe one of them has a phobia. Back in my early 20's I was rear-ended at 50mph (I was sitting at the on-ramp to the freeway waiting to go, when a lady hit me from behind). It was a serious crash. I was scared to death to go on the freeway for several years after that. I'd get really bad vertigo and...

I like to write, and writing in a journal helps some times to gain perspective on things. I write in a regular journal regularly, but I wouldn't mind trying a blog and perhaps sharing it with close friends/family.

Why? I'd have a ton of fun with it. Want any ideas? ;) Besides, let them figure it out. Maybe after a few dozen pages they'll get the idea that maybe they should secure it.

That's exactly what I do. To the OP, you could also burn a disc and just boot from that.

I disagree. They are determined and persistent. If they get caught and sent back, they just try again. They are willing travel 100 miles on tiny boats packed full of people, or go through other perilous conditions to get here. Each one thinking they'll be the lucky ones.

You can align the partitions with GParted. I did it several times. It works, it's just a hassle. I'm too lazy to search for you, but you can find it.

What is the best way to secure a flash drive?

Being a tech website I thought this might be the best place to ask. I run linux and use a flash drive to store files. What would be the best method for securing it? I would prefer plug 'n play, but I'm open to all possibilities.

I lost more than 60 pounds in one year on this diet, and I didn't have to change my lifestyle one bit. Food for thought. The rice gets old quickly, but stick with it. Mix it up with dif...
