Hello,

From the article:
Quote:
but the reality is that it's quite difficult to create a break-in-proof facility
I believe there is no way to keep out the "insiders" who are supposed to have access to the facility. . . If "they" choose to do bad things, i'm not sure how to prevent them - you might detect/track them, but prevention would be mch more difficult.

I can't imagine them maintaining any credibility in the marketplace after this has come to light.
Unfortunately, notariety is better than being unknown. . . If they drop prices for a short while and "promise to do better", they will very possibly add customers. . . icon_confused.gif

I can't help but wonder if data centers had this problem with the ENIAC? icon_biggrin.gif

Heh, heh, heh. . .

If you install the hardware and then build walls around it, it should be much tougher to walk off with. . .

Not unlike building a boat in the basement. . . .
