    v9 v10  
    1212 * If this machine knows my data or personal information (including passwords and other authentication tokens), can i trust it not to leak that information?

    14 Using a TPC gives you a chance to answer some of these questions in ways that seem reasonable.
     14Using a TPC gives you a chance to answer these questions in the affirmative with confidence.

    1616=== Personalization ===
     
    5555 * Have i tried to build a similar tool myself?

    57 Sharing your successful (and not so successful) customizations -- along with the reasoning behind them -- with your friends and allies is a good way to help others.  It also helps other people know what tips you might be interested in, which in turn should enrich your computing experience.
    5857
    5958=== Community Involvement ===
    60 ''This section will be fleshed out soon.''
     59
     60Sharing your successful (and not so successful) customizations and work habits -- along with the reasoning behind them -- with other users is a good way to help out and support the community.  It also helps other people know what tips you might be interested in, which in turn should make your computing experience more efficient.
     61
     62As you settle into using your TPC regularly, seek out friends, allies, and neighbors who do similar work, or who use similar tools.  Ask for advice, and offer it freely when others ask you.  No two people use their computers in the exact same way, but you can build a network of trusted collaborators who enrich each other's  experiences with the machines.

     64Having a circle of friends who work on the same tools is also just plain fun!
    6165
    6266=== Cryptographic Communications ===

    9599==== User Interface ====
    96 For doing solid computing work on a portable machine, nothing beats a decent, reasonably-sized keyboard and an XGA (1024x768) video display.  But these are big things, and are a pain to carry around.
     100For doing solid computing work on a portable machine, nothing beats a decent, reasonably-sized keyboard and at least an XGA (1024x768) video display.  But these are big things, and are a pain to carry around with you.  Can you think of better interfaces, or ways to make them more convenient for transport?
    97101==== Durability ====
    98102The more durable the machine is, the heavier it is.  This is a poor tradeoff for folks who want to take their TPC with them everywhere.  As new technologies arise, though, some systems can be lighter ''and'' more durable.  For example, solid-state storage is both lighter and more durable than a traditional hard disk.
