Privacy Resources

Here are some links for further information:

  • The Privacy Foundation exists to publicize threats to personal privacy.
  • Steve Gibson (who wrote the SpinRite utility) offers Shields UP, which tests your vulnerability from the web. He also offers OptOut, a free utility to let you know when one of your programs is surreptitiously spying on you.
  • The Privacy Forum provides some websites and news reports of interest.
  • I find the Computer Risks Digest extremely interesting. It contains discussions on all types of risks in computer systems, including privacy.
These resources are all pretty old. The problems with malware on the internet has only gotten worse, and this page hasn't kept up to date.
This Old Boat book cover This Old Boat by Don Casey

Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced. This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too. I still refer to it.
