In advance, I'd like to ask a question related to topic in the event that it comes up.  In an era where -- for example -- usb and bluetooth 'mouse and keyboards' with their own upgradable firmware are standard (heck, my monitor plugs into USB as well), and they could 'potentially' have their own -- I don't know - cellular connection like a cheap kindle, can we ever truly be sure anything is secure online?  I mean, for example, can you confirm a person actually typed something or that what they typed wasn't changed between the keyboard and the computer?

Again, I have every reason to believe, at minimum, I have been doxed in the past, and I also have reason to believe, I don't know, that this is the least of my concerns in this day and age.  Seriously, I think we can agree that hive mind may be a thing, I mean it is in a lot of 'popular music' which makes it mainstream.  Also, we all know about deep fake AI which can edit videos in ways that look genuine -- so does video evidence show anything today?

So, is the topic then -- how to decide when/where and what we can 'disclose that we know'?

Also, if we claim to have freedom of speech, how do you force someone to maintain privacy?

   Tuesday 2/12 is the monthly LILUG meeting at 8pm.  As usual we meet at
the Digital Ballpark.  We have a guest speaker, Alex D'Amico esq of

    There are conflicting reports of inclement weather.  We'll wait until
Tuesday at 3pm to decide if the meeting should be held.  Should be obvious
