No offense, but... LMAO! That's just sad; they can't tell a computer
from a UPS...
i also thought about it and it's possible to e. g. to hide a WLAN or
powerline NAS in a wall,
but that's expensive and i do prefer encryption - even for all of my
and my backup in the safe-deposit box.
That does cost nothing (except some performance, some seconds for creation
an the password
for mounting) and it's save.
And i've read reportsthat the police sometimes also takes printers and
other PC stuff, so an
UPS is not a good idea.
Currently i'm putting my root file system on an USB key, following the
encrypted root filesystem
howto, in a partition of type 0 (officially empty).
And if you use a small USB key, e. g. an Sony Micro Vault Tiny, you can
hide it nearly everywhere,
because it's so small:
If you have small children, you first should make sure that it can not get
If someone, e. g. a judge or policeman, asks you for the password you can
simply forget it or say that due to
the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, article 14,
paragraph 3, chapter g, you
can not be forced to tell someone else the password:
So asking for a password is a suspect trick, because since the romans the
principle that you can't be
compelled to testify against yourself or to confess, e. g. by telling
someone else a password, is standard
and known as "nemo tenetur se ipsum accusare".
So if someone forces you to give a password it is highly illegal a) du to
international law, b) against more
than more than 2000 years of jurisdiction, c) against the freedom of
thought (a password which is created
by your brain is only a thought) and several other constitutional
In germany the "nemo tenetur se ipsum accusare" is specified as STPO
Another point is that a good password is hard to create; therefore you can
reclaim the international
copyright for your good passwords.
If someone would ask me for a password, i would spam, tell wrong
passwords, to waste his time, which could
be used to ask others for passwords ;-)
