The above is my answer as well.  Let's face it, you're going to get
hacked (cracked for the clueless pedantic).  That's a reality: There is
someone on the planet better than you
and he will one day take a liking to your machine.  The best we can do is
make him work his ass off for it.

Incidintally that gets rid of the script kiddies too.  When a machine
under my control is hacked (as I know one day it will be), I want it to be
by a world-class genius hacker.  A script kiddie flooding Undernet off my
box would be embarrassing.
