Xmonad + Xterm with green text (Score: 1, Interesting)

My "desktop" is xmonad with many xterms open. I use green as foreground color, so almost all text comes up at green. I read my mail through the console, ircing, writing programs with vim. How would they interpret this? A lot of green text flying on screens...

I think it is impossible for uneducated people to know what somebody does in front of the computer. Just because it looks like "Hollywood hacking" it is not hacking.

Hmm... It would be great if you had some kind of polarized display that showed you the contents only if you are wearing special glasses. Yet to everyone else, it looks like solitaire...

Something like this, but with solitaire for everyone else not wearing glasses:

I think if you sat with glasses on staring at a white screen, that might also rasie suspisions too much.
