Here's what I've done.

I'm using a mac. I have created an 128bit AES encrypted dmg file of 4Gb. I've put inside all my bitcoin folder and symlinked it to my bitcoin app folder into 'Applications'.

Everytime I need to do a transaction, I mount the dmg and running the bitcoin-bt app from the encrypted folder. I know this can be a bit slow at times; but I don't mind. As an extra measure I've also encrypted my wallet.dat file, just in case.

Cheers.

You would have to really trust the bitcoin specific live cd's because they could be comprimised already.

The developer's pubic key has a massive web of trust and signed by well known devs.
You then make the decision to add the public key to your chain.

Check again if find the keys fingerprint all over the net.

Don't be an idiot and sign any pubic keys unless you yourself know the owner and got it face to face. For your own keychain trust models be pessimistic. 

gpg --verify xxxxx.iso.asc xxxxx.iso

Make sure you see "good signature"

This is a good start.

is electrum safe for usage? the fact that it can regenerate my wallet from the a list of words i input (seed) is a little disturbing, but reading through their website of how this works, it seems secure enough. so i'm asking someone with better knowledge, if i can keep my seed secure, is electrum a safe enough bitcoin client?

PS: i do like the fact i can check my wallet without having to download the entire block chain.

Hey, we n00bs have to stick together.  Some of us just happen to have a little more of a computing background.

Now if only I can finally land a job with my recent Bachelor's degree in Computer Science...
