Ya just gotta love this list.
For thread hijacking follow ons, I'm waiting for:
- methods of defeating the self-locking door
- cracker / privacy / DRM methods and issues surrounding the

With appropriate warnings of course:
- just like, don't go shopping when you're hungry
- measure your hunger level and estimated time required to defeat the
door lock, before starting. Perhaps add extra toppings as buffer.
