This is a writing question, I promise

If you were to hide porn on your computer, what would you name the folder they'd go under so as not to warrant suspicion?

Again, check the subject line. This is a pertinent plot point here for the work-in-progress.

Well, I used "Neil's Private Folder" for a short time, but frankly, it was too much of a hassle. So I've stuck with "1337." I know, it's a bit passe-hackerish but, it works. Not many people, outside the computer world, know what 1337 refers to.

I knew a guy who hid things in a folder named "." As in, Period. Then he marked it as an invisible folder. I don't know if you can still do that.

TK: Ha, I know what 1337 means!!! Anyways, that's a good idea still. Hiding behind something that seems to just be nonsensical jargon.

Holly: Oh, that'd make it tricky to stumble over. Others have suggested the invisible folder thing. Either way, our man-with-secrets is going to get caught. :P
