[PD] responsability / privacy

I attached the Mac mini with steel bands inside the glue-sealed box - you
can find it in a hardware store, bend it and screw it in. Most important
with closed boxes is aeration holes in the rear to avoid overheating.
It would take a long time for a potential robber to steal anything and
nobody would take such risk in a public place to my opinion.

thanks for contributions !
course there is no keyboard nor mouse, just a mini mac headless in a box.
point is that i have to guarantee somehow that no geek can twist things
easily physically on the mac,
even if the guy has a screwdriver, for instance to steal images via GEM or
being no hacker myself :)
(you know, society is getting more and more paranoid…)

if you could start your patch with pd -nogui flag, patches would no be
visible, so afaik not to be editable
