comment Can I hide torrent details from my ISP?
Thanks. I expect that Google will be quickest (if a few ms DNS resolution time really matter, compared to page load time), but I shall also look again at OpenDNS whcih I used to use ... opendns.com/home-internet-security/opendns-ip-addresses

We will manufacture our own baord, but, yeah, currently an Atmel UC3. Maybe we had best remove all JTAG when designing the board. Thanks again for such a detailed feedback. Maybe I will fly you over here to try to crack one ;-)

+1 both. @Polynomial, thank you very much for such a detailed analysis. You have given me much to worry about. I agree that a tube lock is easy to bypass and wonder if I should use somethign more robust (I am doing the s/w, but we will manufacture the h/w too). Once the door is open, I hope they woudl just take the cash, not look for a long term fleece (but...). Thanks for the tip about Ethernet; in V2 I want to use RJ45 or WiFi, and will encrypt all traffic. We don't intend to market to USA, only Asia, so don't need to worry about FCC.
