Again, 10 years ago, the max file size supported by Windows was 127gb, but that wasn't a problem because nobody had 127gb hdds, so by the time we need, or have 16tb hdds Windows will support it.

but take note of #21:
"Did you know that in Windows, there is built in back-door entry so US government can see you data as and when they like? Yes the US NSA has the key build into every copy of Windows."

They're going to know all the pr0n sites I've been to! Oh noes!

I had a feeling there was some kinda hidden feature in Windows we didn't know about that records everything we do.

Yeah I seriously doubt the NSA is gonna be concerned about my porn browsing habits and tendency to "acquire" certain things. Hell google tracks just about everything I do online also...even going so far as telling me how many times I've visited a page when I do a search. If this is used at all, it will be for either terrorist activity (bomb making and such) or child pornography. If this key thing helps bust either, I'm all for it.

My point is that the NSA doesn't care about your midget porn fetish. If you're discussing plans to blow something up, you might want to find another method of communication.

So, um... are you blind?
