Indeed. Today's also Tag der Deutschen Einheit ("German Unity Day"),
which celebrates the end of the GDR -- whose secret police service, the
Ministerium fuer Staatsicherheit[*], commonly known as Stasi, practiced
surveillance of its own citizens on a scale that's hard to imagine. So,
celebrate your privacy by donating to GnuPG and sitting down with the
movie _Das Leben der Anderen_, released in English-speaking countries as
_The Lives of Others_. It's a remarkable film and worth seeing.
[*] Werner, Wikipedia lists it as Staatssicherheit, but for some reason
that just doesn't look right to me. Is it?
