Website update

Hi Sprats!

We know we’re a little late with our next episode – we wanted to come back in October. But, we’re getting there and should have a show out next week.

Part of the delay was getting the new site design up and as you can see, that is now done!

A by-product of the site move *may* be that your podcatcher will think every episode is new, but since we use Feedburner for our feed, I don’t think that will be the case. But if it happens, we are sorry. You can safely mark everything up to episode 46 as “read” and await episode 47 next week.

      • iDrive has proper encryption and device separation
      • The 2FA is provided by a separate encryption/decryption password from the login password
      • You also get a sync folder to sync data across all your devices without it counting against your backup quota
      • Annnd the price is right! Click here to check out iDrive (affiliate link)
