I Ramped Up My Internet Security, and You Should Too

This was posted on the Santa Fe Macintosh User Group page by Giuseppe Quinn with the comment: “Everyone—journalists or not—faces an increasing array of attacks on our security and privacy. Even if you’re not the United States’ intelligence chief, whose email was recently hacked, it’s smart to up your game. So this year, I thought I’d share my resolutions.

It seems the Cocktail app is no more?

George Christensen posted this on the North Coast MUG page with the comment: “I tried to Update a couple weeks back, the update didn’t like my key code, so I emailed them at help@maintain.se, no reply, tried again a week later as well as submitting a message on their website which is still active, and there is still no response… The developer must have moved on, didn’t take his site down… ??
