We'll see if he's able to run. Hopefully the impeachment trial ends with a ban on him ever holding any public office.

Re: TeamViewer jaybass 01/21/21 11:47 PM
I had my doubts about TeamViewer but when Jason Snell ( writes for Macworld) said it was ok, I thought I would post it here for a second opinion.

I do have ClamXAV which runs in the background and has on several occasions alerted me immediately when malware/virus is detected.

Thanks for your advice Joe.

Re: Coronavirus information: assorted web links artie505 01/21/21 08:03 PM
I've got no idea what's going on in NYC.

Early on in the pandemic I got at least one robo-call a week from the NYC Health Department - even got one from a live person - but that ended when things lightened up, and I haven't heard so much as a peep out of them since then, even since the surge began.

I know that my dentist got his first shot on Monday, and I know nothing more about vaccinations than that.

Because it is a sophisticated product, there is (unfortunately) a learning curve. Some, but not all, of the key commands are the same as Photoshop. There are good instruction videos on Affinity's website.

I still have a copy of Photoshop CS 5.5 on my old Mac Pro, which I had to fall back on to do my Christmas card, but I can manage most things in Affinity Photo now. I have Affinity Designer and Publisher, as well. £75 for a lifetime license to replace Adobe CS is a bargain. I'm not convinced it's as good, but I don't need it as a work tool anymore.

I am also Safari 14.0.2 and use the NYT site without issue. I often quit and restart Safari (e.g. before going to a financial site in order to clear unwanted cookies) but I seldom shut down my iMac. At the end of day I log out, which quits all applications first.

Maybe with another email app, but as far as I know in Mail it is all or nothing.
