    Partially. It depends on the kind of connection. One shouldn't just plug their computer into a modem that is not/ or not connected through a secured NAT router.

    I haven't found a link to it yet, but there was a test done by the makers of ZoneAlarm, where they plugged a fresh PC [straight] into the Internet, and had hack attempts immediately from all over the world; and some from their own zipcode. This stuff never dies. There's still Nimda and Code-Red, and Melissa, and... all floating around online.

    Speaking about internet, Russia is thinking about creating their own "internet", RuNet so to speak. Kinda like what China has today.

    Prohibition never works.

    China is also contiplating to create their own Operating system... which means they would reinvent the wheel—with all of its associated stress cracks.

    [M$ has been patching Windows since 1986—and continues to no end.]

    Finland just qualified for the European Champioships in REAL football. We celebrate this in the streets, some are naked. This is the first time we have ever qualified for the Euros.

    Just an interesting aside.



    https://www.wikihow.com/Store-Water-Long-Term



    A natural disaster or other emergency could cut off water access for weeks. Storing your own supply addresses your most important need in this situation. Although water does not "go bad" in the same way that food does, it can breed harmful bacteria if you do not purify it or store it in safe conditions. The other risk is chemical contamination, either from certain types of plastic containers, or from chemical vapors that pass through the walls of the water containers.


    Yeah you can store water forever. It has to be in a specialized plastic container and has to be distilled.
