Lots of VMs and sandboxes, MAC-address-based ACLs for access to shares, and knowledge that for every website you block, there are usually at least five others that can provide the same information/service (and if there aren't, you can live without them, anyway -- e.g. the message "Cannot connect to google.com" doesn't bother me in the slightest).

Oh, and total lack of fear in deleting unopened e-mails.

I'm writing this in a weven VM that I use for chat-type stuff, and always close without saving its state.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
