You still don't get it. My server, at home. Not some company's. All the encryption, VPN, one-time SSH passwords and backup methods I care to use.
If I happened to be elsewhere, as long as that end has a decent connection I'll be fine using the stuff. There's nothing less than 100MB wire and routers between me and this country's internet backbone.
I'd be a retard to shuffle around a pile of optical disks and burn more on an ultraportable laptop (remember, there's an actual context for this thread?). I actually did have a small tower of burned CD's eight, nine years ago when it made more practical sense, and when I was still a warez monkey. That was then. Now even the 50GB of a dual-layer Blu-Ray is starting to seem small compared to the 1TB hard drive you can pick up at the store, and Blu-Ray still hasn't become mainstream and cost effective.
You just dated yourself grandpa by saying warez kid lol who the f%$@ says that anymore? Wired mag?
I admit I feel about twenty years your elder right now. You are in single digits, right?
