Re: [design] January of LEAVING OBSCURITY BEHIND


What is this "Leaving obscurity behind"?

Has anyone heard of "Security by Obscurity"?

I would like to start a thread about designing with security in mind.

What are peoples thoughts on this topic?

Received an email today at 12:54 pm (eastern time) from Doug, an architect
friend in Canada, asking that I call him as soon as possible. Sad news...
Leslie, a mutual architect friend, died this morning in Dallas. Then called
Tony, another architect friend and former business partner of Leslie and
Doug, and told him the sad news. Then called Ron and told him the sad news
as well. Then, around 3 o'clock this afternoon, Ron called me to tell me
Philip Johnson died last night.

Leslie was a wonderful person, and she was even very instrumental in getting
my former CAD business off the ground. I love her, and I miss her more than
I ever imagined.

1945 Soviet troops liberate the Nazi concentration/death camp at

It is a sad irony that on 1 January 1945, 1000s of Donau-Schwabens were
herded into boxcars at Apatin, Yugoslavia and shipped to Soviet labor/mining
camps in southern Ukraine. The trainloads arrived in/near Bokovo 19 January
1945. Those that survived the concentration were finally freed and sent to
West Germany late 1949.

The Donau-Schwabens are ethnic Germans that settled along the Danube River
throughout northern Serbia and Romania in the late 1700s after the
Austro-Hungarians pushed the Turks out of that region.

Only those between the age of 18 and 45 were shipped to Bokovo. The
remaining Donau-Schwabens were placed in concentration/death camps
throughout Serbia and Romania. Gakovo was the location of one of the camps.
