Support Alert has merged with Windows Secrets

Ian “Gizmo” Richards, left, the former editor of the Support Alert Newsletter, is the new senior editor of a larger, combined publication: Windows Secrets & Support Alert.

All of the old Support Alert articles are now posted at See today’s Introduction for details.
