JUST WHEN we're starting to get used to shopping on the Web, along comes a mystery crook, "Maxim," to remind us that life isn't safe. And it's not only Web shoppers who have to worry.

He claims to have stolen more than 300,000 credit-card files from an online music retailer called CD Universe. He demanded that CD Universe pay $100,000 for him to destroy his copy of the files.

RETIREMENT IS sweet for Edwin Maxim. The 78-year-old Davidsonville resident and his wife, June, love their five children and 10 grandchildren, and their life enriched with good friendships.

Who knows the mystery of the winter heart? Not even Claude Sautet, the gifted French filmmaker who explores its hurtfulness in "Un Coeur en Hiver," his exquisite new film opening today at the Rotunda.The winter heart belongs to Stephane, played by the great Daniel Auteuil. Stephane is a craftsman of extraordinary skill, a world-class luthier: He fixes broken violins. Not just any violins, either, but those mournful vessels of aged resonance and mahogany echo that only the truly great violinists can master.

Sin is back big-time.That's the message of the new wave of magazines for twentysomethings swamping newsstands and the mails, especially the magazines for young men.Esquire, GQ and Details -- and geezer titles that purvey young flesh, like Playboy and Penthouse -- are being forced to share an increasingly crowded field.
