Arpawocky’s encrypted Mac volume followup

Thoughts

Icon from the Tango Desktop project Back in September 2009 I wrote about using Disk Utility to create encrypted volumes, and how to use Terminal.app to overcome Mac OS X's limitation of not allowing pasting of strong passphrases (Good encrypted disk images on Mac OS X). This afternoon, Arpawocky wrote a brilliant followup with his own recommendations and experience, and even donated a cup of coffee!

I'm sending my humble thank yous to Arpawocky, and encouraging you to read the comments section of the aformentioned post if you're serious about using Disk Utility encrypted volumes on Mac OS X with good passphrases.
