Google officially abandons Nik

We all knew this was coming, but Google finally officially abandoned the Nik Collection.

Here an article with some common-sense advice:

Not sure how many of you folks know about this site, but it’s certainly worth visiting, and signing up for. It will tell you if your email address(es) have been made public, and what info was released in the hack.

Somewhile back, I signed up for their email notifications (free) and yesterday got one. This time the hack included passwords. Then I spent 4 hours pouring thru 467 1Password accounts from 2007 -2008 that I had (foolishly) used the same, simple password on. Fortunately, most are harmless forums or some such, but I did find about 40 which went to accounts with stores. I had to visit each one, and change my password.

THIS time, I’m taking full advantage of 1Password’s unique password generator for each site. At least I won’t have to go thru all this again.

Now I’m off to check that list a second time, and likely make more changes.

What a way to spend the day…

Video Editing software bargain


Most of our cameras include video recording these days, and not all of us use expensive editing suites. However, I just ran across this a few minutes ago, and with the coupon for 50% off (use: VLMACINTOUCH ) it’s an incredible deal ($15). Deal expires March 19, 2017.

Frankly, even at $30 it looks like a bargain.

I have purchased it, but not tested it yet, but it looked too good, and the time is too short, to let it pass without spreading the word.

Of course, YMMV…

Here’s the link:
