And if you believe that

I’ve got a slightly used bridge for sale on eBay.

Recently Bought a Windows Computer? Microsoft Probably Has Your Encryption Key
ONE OF THE EXCELLENT FEATURES of new Windows devices is that disk encryption is built-in and turned on by default, protecting your data in case your device is lost or stolen. But what is less well-known is that, if you are like most users and login to Windows 10 using your Microsoft account, your computer automatically uploaded a copy of your recovery key — which can be used to unlock your encrypted disk — to Microsoft’s servers, probably without your knowledge and without an option to opt out.
[…]
Users can choose to delete recovery keys from their Microsoft accounts…

Everyone who believes that will completely delete the key from MacroSnoop’s servers, raise your hand.

Seriously, folks. I’ve heard of some alleged freedom lovers who claim to love Win10. Why?

    Slightly used? When’s the last time you drove across the Brooklyn Bridge, Carl? That thing is seriously fucked up. There has not been a period in the last twenty years when a lane one way or the other wasn’t closed for refurbishing.

      What? You believed that? [grin]

      Never, I’m happy to say. Aside from some required military travel, I’ve successfully avoided NYC.

        USAF never put me through there, drove around the time I actually went from Travis to New Hampshire to Florida back to New Hampshire back to Travis on leave.

        Living more than twenty years not much over ten miles from where the WTC used to be, I’ve had to cross that span too many times.
