Hello Daniel,

I'm from Gastonia near Charlotte in NC.  I've been doing 
security-related things for quite a few years.  You have chosen a very 
interesting topic . . . I'd be interesting in hearing the results you 
get.  I am in the process of starting a company that will address the 
very issues that you have identified . . . helping (clueless) 
individuals and small businesses more security-conscious and helping 
them figure out how to put the appropriate controls in place.  Will be 
happy to share insights and results with you.

Best regards,

George Capehart
