Signed up for Proton Mail public beta today. The are based in Switzerland and all ProtonMail to ProtonMail emails are automatically encrypted. You can also encrypt, or not encrypt, email you send to a, say, Gmail account but the recipient needs to know a password you assigned them in order to decrypt it. When you sign in you have a username and two passwords. One password for your regular sign-in and a second password to decrypt the message date. ProtonMail mail never have access to the second password, or at least claim so.

National Univerisity Maynooth Sociology Department

The new website for the Sociology Department at NUIM Maynooth went live in March 2011.  Once again I built this NUIM site based on a design by Eclipse Internet Services.  Using Drupal, the Zen 2.0 base theme, the design specification and a number of jpeg images, I delivered a standards compliant and semantically correct XHTML theme.   

 

The site had less functionality requirements than the NUIM library site but a little extra work on the design implementation.  Some of the functionality I included, with the help of contributed modules, are events, news feeds, custom front page built using panels, wysiwyg editor, dropdown primary menus, views and site map.
