The most significant feature I saw with ARC was the use of profiles (look at the screenshots on their web site to get a sense of this). But I just read that the new Safari update included with macOS 14 (Sonoma) also has a profile feature. I have not checked it yet.

SCOTUS is part of the problem (as noted in the article), decidedly not part of the solution.
I don't agree with that.
As also noted in the opinion, SCOTUS's recent involvement with executions has not been 8th Amendment related at all, rather it's been restricted to rejecting stays.
As cold-hearted as the conservative majority is, I'd like to believe that it's at least got enough humanity to disallow a method of execution that's not even fit for cats and dogs, the condemned prisoner having opted for it - indeed, having had no other option - notwithstanding.

The point is, that it works. Why flog a dead horse?
Call it inveterate curiosity, or, more accurately, call it autopsying that horse to see what could be learned from its death, …
Technically, "necropsy" when done on an animal.
In this instance, perhaps it's more appropriately called a "techropsy."
(You walked right into that one.

It happened again, but this time I got a helpful screenshot
Also curious is where that Top Site came from. It's WQXR FM radio, which I haven't accessed in Safari in, I'm pretty sure, years. I visit that site in Firefox.

The download folder is a function of the application that is performing the download. In Safari you will find the setting here
. Most browsers have that setting in a similar location. If you do not find that in a particular applications settings they typically perform their download using the default browser and follow its settings.

Google’s decision to change their download API is no fifferent than Apple’s decision to replace macOS’ 32 bit APis with 64 bit APIs, and likely effected more third party Windows apps as well as macOS apps.

It will reappear periodically when a new device, new app, or app update, occurs and attempts to access system files, devices, or services that have not been previously approved. I can't verify this at the moment, but IIRC app store apps are sandboxed and do not require user access verification.

Missing notifications arrived all at once yesterday, no idea where they'd been stockpiled or what changed to get them delivered. Email system is now working properly, AFAICT.

....so 11.7.10 should now be installed, particularly on top of 11.7.3.
Turns out my daughter's machine will handle Ventura so we're going straight to it without passing Go.
Re: (No Sender) spam
09/08/23 04:25 PM
I will say, though, that with the resources available today, any algorithm that marks a sender as a spammer based simply on the number of email accounts without considering the amount of mail sent is guilty of criminal negligence!
and they can be held legally and criminally liable if too much SPAM originates on their network or reaches their subscribers.
...as they should be, but it's their job to balance...to monitor the flow, and I guess the fact that I've never been flagged for running 6 email accounts suggests that they are balancing.
Bottom line is that spam is the fact, not the ability.

I just tried Recovery again, but this time, as opposed to the instructions in Jon's linked article, I shut down/started up rather than restarted, and I got into the security pane. (My pref was set as I remembered.)
