Genuine question:

Is there is a 'name and shame' list of software that phones home and what it is sending that Little Snitch has discovered ?

Using sudo tcpflow -c I have found very little software on the Mac that phones home other than to retreive the current version info.

If someone has put together a list it would be really interesting to see.

It is sad to say that the fantastic interfce of Canvas 3.5.4 on Mac has gone for ever.

Current versions like 9.04 have a Windoze-like awkward ugly and complicated anti-intuitive interface.

And the Canvas 3.5 files imported or open with Canvas 9.x have lots of flaws.

A shame.

I hope Deneba (now ADC Systems) addresses these serious issues once and for all.

Meanwhile we have been forced to switch to competitor applications.

There's only one way to "securely delete" files: The Gutmann Method.

It appears that Shredit X only overwrites a file with a "proprietary" bit pattern a "proprietary number of times."

I've seen enough of these so called secure deletion programs posted on this board that I think I'm going to go write an open source program that uses the Gutmann method -- security and privacy should not have a price tag attached to them.
