If the NSA, with its hundred billion dollar budget, wants your secrets bad enough, they can put a bug in your home, or a hardware keyboard logger, or just pick you up secretly and take you to Guantanamo.
I'm not being a jerk, I'm responding to two jerks. Bill obviously has no expertise to offer, and it's becoming clear that you probably don't either. N

My my after I take my time to help you so I am a jerk? Another report to Robert it would seems. At least you had not charge me with being a child molester but just a jerk for some unknown reason.
Those indoor lightening storms must be some kind of perk, sadly I never got to see one. Frankly, I've never heard of them. Where do you get your intel, Bill?
The NSA’s Utah data center is still struggling to get up and running. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that the site slated to hold exabytes of NSA spy data has been suffering from lightning arcs and meltdowns that have destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment and prevented the NSA from using the center for its intended purpose: massive data storage and mining. The WSJ reported there had been ten incidents thus far. A source familiar with the project says the center underwent yet another shutdown over the weekend after electrical problems on Thursday and Friday.
The data center was shut down through Tuesday. The source says there aren’t “arcs and fires anymore” but that the experts on the site still haven’t figured out what’s causing the problems. They have figured out how to prevent flashes of lightning, though.
“They’re seeing a pattern of where it gets to the meltdown point and they stop it before it blows again,” says the source. The source says that contractors have been injured and taken to the hospital due to electrocution, but not in the most recent shutdown.
NSA spokesperson Vanee Vines provided a statement about the problems at the site that had previously been provided: “The failures that occurred during testing have been mitigated. A project of this magnitude requires stringent management, oversight, and testing before the government accepts any building.”
“As we’ve said, acceptance testing is underway,” she added.
We can kill two birds with one stone, you will get to meet some nice FBI people and I can fulfill my obligation in accordance with my oath.
