Letter from John LuValle

Letter from Zack Bass


I'd encourage other readers to "be the change" and contribute to TLE: a small step toward establishing the free (but you still have to pay for things) libertarian society we want to live in.

John LuValle

You are invited to use the services of This is and always will be FREE—once you learn what it is supposed to do, you will know that there is no way to charge for it without compromising its usefulness.

Read the home page and try it out. Let me know if it doesn't do what it says it will do. Go ahead and try to trip it up. . . I'd like to know what to fix; if it breaks it's easy enough to re-load it. But don't try fancy denial-of-service attacks or hacking. . . the big boys will be doing that soon enough. I have read that PGP has some security holes. If DHS or NSA keeps killing it off, it's easy enough to re-write it in Perl or C and put it on an offshore server and get lots of other guys to do it too, once this proof of concept has been done. . . and the fact that "They" went to the trouble of hacking my little site will tell us something. What I want to know for now is just, Does it accept your encrypted files, and does it allow you to browse for files intended for your eyes only?

If you don't see a need for such a site, fine, it's mostly harmless.

Later it will look prettier; I'm announcing it now so that Beta Testing can proceed while I jolly it up in the next few days.
