comment How to be safe from wifikill!
Well, you know, it's easy for me to say that. I guess it much depends on the room-mate. And I can really relate to the OP's not wanting to make a big issue of such a situation; I'm pretty confrontation-averse myself.

comment Splitting data between wifi networks for security
Good point. Or what if the two networks paths get merged somewhere upstream - somewhere untrustworthy? Not only this would negate any security advantage, it would be a dead giveaway allowing an attacker to actually better select which data to capture (assuming the two channels aren't being further obfuscated - but this smacks of "rolling your own cryptography").

comment Sharing a common public and private SSH keys for a cluster of machines
Why does the load balancer balance all ports? It could only balance those actually supplying the balanced service, not SSH too. Or it might be feasible to dedicate a port range and, within that range, one port for every machine in the cluster. 2201 -> alice-1, 2202 -> alice-2 and so on.

comment Will gmail close my well intentioned botnet account?
@Typo: I would stress that increased reliability and maintainability (and reduced time to deployment) is by far worth the expense. Just think about checking the logs between GMail (where you cannot) and doing the same on an Amazon EC2 you own. No contest. And you will very probably have to do this every time one of those 1000 PC's hiccups and you need to investigate what happened. Saving time now at the expense of more time down the road, when "now" is 1% of total, is illogical.
