Tony Pizza: Two questions related to Kim Kommando’s column:
1. She says for privacy and safety, you can use The Onion Router or Tor, for short, She says it’s hard to set up, but says there’s a (unnamed) browser that makes it easy to use. Is it worth it?
2. She recommends using Quad9 maintained by IBM and The Global Cyber Alliance as a DNS service. She says it instantly checks any site you wish to visit against IBM XForce’s threat intelligence database of more than 40 billion analyzed webpages and images. Is it better than the ones you have mentioned?

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 76

Compuserve forums closing

Lisa Toth   I used to use Thunderbird, switched to Windows live; liked it but now I find it is not supported anymore.  My windows 10 Toshiba laptop has “mail” (outlook?)  I like the idea of having the program include calendar and such. Should I go back to Thunderbird?

Lisa Toth   My experience makes me think my contacts are not on my computer. What is actually happening.

Andy Toth   I used to have no issue with connecting my phone to my computer via USB. Downloading my pictures uploading music no problem. I’ve tried a dozen times or more in the last three days and my phone is no longer recognized.

Lisa Toth   I wanted to change my email address. It still doesn’t work for the old address and that is where my contacts were. When I looked at Mail/outlook, there are my contacts! How do I move them to my new account?

News Item:   AOL is ending CompuServe forums on December 15.

News Item:   What’s Quad9 DNS?
