Have a completely isolated computer analysis system that's watching the network communications of all the other computers in the network you're protecting. This analysis system would be able to recognize hacking attempts and flag them, and, because it is isolated, if your main network is compromised, your analysis system still will be able to tell you exactly what happened.

If I were to say something along the lines of "I would like the 11-99 combo and delivery", would the dispatcher recognize that as the police code for "I need help immediately"?

I find that many of my elected representatives in Congress are wholly unfamiliar with the nitty-gritty technical details that explain why their proposal for something is wholly unworkable. I am also curious as to know how they are convinced into cosponsoring some of these pieces of legislation.

Is it at all valuable for me, as a regular citizen, to ask for a brief meeting with my Congressperson's staff, to express my concerns with a piece of legislation they have already sponsored against my point of view? I would assume that the people on the other side of the issue are doing the same. If so, what's the best way to make your case?

I'm glad to hear it. I am an open-source contributor to Signal and unfortunately one of my Senators is a co-sponsor of the EARN IT Act. I think I may take it upon myself to request a meeting. Thanks again!

I'm a big fan of Strong Towns, and I've come to realize that you've put into words why I like so many of Pennsylvania's small boroughs that are (or formerly were) railroad towns.

As someone who is into local government, what can I do to help realize some of these principles in the place that I live? I might even run for local council, but even then, it's not like I could snap my fingers and bring back the train system. But I very much worry that trying to change zoning will draw the ire of the majority 45+ year old residents who have lived in town for most of their life and feel prejudiced against the renters/people who live in multifamily units/apartments/etc.
