this place is a fortress (and my router is impenetrable too)

Careful there, Dave.  That sounded a little like a challenge.   ;)

Oops. No challenge intended. My belief is simple.... ANY home (or network) can easily be broken into. If you have the wealth to attract someone's interest they will make you a victim. It's just the way the world spins.

But... if you minimize your own life for fear of becoming part of the situation. You make yourself a victim.

Got rid of my cell phones, only getting junk on them.
Don't answer my land line unless I recognize the caller.
Very careful what sites I go to on the Internet.
Cloud is just a server in some ones back room maybe.
Am I paranoid?

Only if you live in a container buried behind the house and use a security camera and speakers to interact with visitors.   ;D
