Any +Evernote users have a problem with shared notebooks after this 5.6.0 Mac upgrade?

After doing the upgrade on a Mac OS 10.7.5 iMac, I've lost all visual indications of my shared notebooks.  Things look okay via web browser interface and on another iMac that has not been upgraded yet.

Submitted a support request Wednesday evening (the 24th), got a confirmation promising support within 1 business day, but never another word (it is now the 28th).  :-(

This was taken late Sunday afternoon from Colfax, CA (about 31 miles NW of Pollock Pines, CA).  At this point the fire has already spread to over 2000 acres - as of last night it had reached almost 13,000 acres.

Wonder where this story will lead!

Mysterious Fake Cellphone Towers Are Intercepting Calls All Over The US

Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science.

Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts. 


Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD's CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement tech...

Too bad, +Steven Sharp Nelson!  It would have been so nice if you could have paid, tricked, or forced your Dad to read the letter just as you wrote it.  :-)

Another regulatory commission that like a dog rolling in crap, doesn't seem to care how bad they smell to the rest of the world.  At least as long as they keep their corporate keepers happy.
