I'm a little bit out of subject but, talking about paranoia, does anyone have any idea on how to make a camera jammer ? I was thinking about strong IR lights blinding the CCDs, but it was just an idea...
Anyway I'll surely make a thread on the forums.

Yes, I was talking about security cameras, now I just need to do an 'Ible about this.
Btw, Isn't it just a couple of AA battery wired to a bunch of IR LEDs ?
Yay, I have been trying to figure a way of having something of the like, I'm planning on getting a second 'puter running as my secure computer...
