    Of all listed, my favorite is the A Priest, a Minister, and a Rabbi Maxim: People lacking imagination, skepticism, and a sense of humor should not work in the security field.

    I really liked the buffet maxim.

    Buffett Maxim: You should only use security hardware, software, and strategies you understand.

    Thats the key to my whole approach.
    I know what the apps I use can and can't do , and don't throw on other stuff just cause everyone else has it.
    If I can't understand it I don't use it.

    < Allow myself 1 Exception in using Windows XP FW >

    It often baffles me how many people go on whether to use product x or y , when it seems they don't know what they do !
