Listener emails

Hi Bill,

Just a quick question after listening to TheSimulcast 156 regarding BTGuard. A great tip, but do you use BTGuard Encryption as well, or just the standard BTGuard. Reading the docs, I have no idea if my ISP does deep packet inspection, I suspect they don’t, so do I need the extra overhead for BTGuard encryption?
