Night Fight

What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

For IM use Pidgin with Pidgin Encryption 3.1 plugin and enable RSA 2048 for encryption. Use PGP encryption software for your connections and truecrypt to keep your hard disk data safe. Use a combination of a good AV (regularly update) a good Anti Spyware and a firewall on paranoid mode. The weakest link in security is the user himself, so remember to keep track of all connections on your computer. It would help to spoof your IP and MAC address from time to time. For your router, use WPA2/PSK and create a long password with a combination of random letters, numbers, symbols and caps. It's paranoid security. Nobody should bother you with that.

Well damn.. Either someone's paranoid, or just really smart.

For those about to rock.

Would take a bit more than a rookie to break that wouldn't it? ;)

And for this field of work, paranoia is bliss. :D
My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me
for.
