Hi Ian,

I know... I worry about the cloud myself. I find Google and the PATRIOT act are especially worrisome.

I imagine this would be the convergence problem (or a variant thereof) that Dykstra studied in the 60's and still plagues routers to this day.

Perhaps you should hit the folks at Immunet directly with the questions. If you have the questions, others probably have them also. I suggest it because I have no affiliation with the company, so you would probably get better answers.
