    Public service announcement:
    Anyone who believes in »safety« sgian dubhs should have a look at Bruce 
    Schneier's essay, »Airplane Security and Metal Knives«, available from
    Bruce Schneier is a notable IT security expert who has also written 
    extensively and cogently on safety and security in fields other than IT. His 
    weblog at is well worth following if you are at 
    all interested in these things (and everybody should be, I think). He has 
    also written a bunch of rather worthwhile books.
    Now returning you to your scheduled discussion on whether SCD is folk 
    dancing ...
