[Freedombox-discuss] Freedombox Mesh Network Simulator
Good question. Don't know. If they're that far ahead of us though, we're done.
FBXs will naturally encrypt things. It would take luck or massive brute force (or a quantum computer) to decrypt it.
And ... who's to say the WiFi we use in FBX isn't communicating everything via a subspace frequency to a ship stationed near Alpha Centauri? :-) The FBXs do run hot you know. :-)
Good points though. And I hope quantum computers don't exist too! :-)
