    reduce email presence

    To reduce my footprint, I tend to remove older messages. Have been using Mail Archiver X for a while. Makes it harder to search when away from my computer, but reduces exposure from older emails. Also, you could just delete them, but there are times that having your older messages can be useful...

    LastPass changes will make free tier less useful

    It is a pain to get, but 1password has a local version, so you don't depend on their online services. Convenient if it is for your own use, or don't need to share passwords with others

    browser config depository

    Throughout the show, Steve has given several switches to tweak the browsers. However, we mgiht take advantage of these then, but sometimes we need to reset the browser (which already had to do). Any chance of having these listed somewhere on grc.com? Thanks for the hard work and keeping us...

    What would you run in an EdgeRouterX?

    Takes some getting used to their interface. It is a bit different from other consumer routers. However, once you get over the initial learning difficulties, it is a rather powerful system. UI has been very good about upgrading the software. Mine is a poe model and it is a bit old. Also, UI is...
