The Lurking Turkey

I have a speech tomorrow about Being in Earnest, and I'm not sure what to write about. Computers yes, but what about them!? It sounds like it's supposed to be partially persuasive. I don't exactly know what about my speech will be persuasive... Not going to go with that stupid Windows vs Mac thing. Perhaps I will tell about the different versions of Windows. I know quite a bit on that. Wouldn't be too difficult.
Windows 1/2, 3/3.1, 4(95,98,Millennium), 5(NT/2000/XP) 6(Vista) and Windows 7(6.1).

Mgamerz Productions Cryptographer

This is my cryptography program, which isn't totally finished yet. Shrinking now works (It's very simple). Geffe Key will soon be completely finished, and the LFSR program is finished (with the exception of one bug that will be fixed soon).
I renamed it from LFSR to Cryptographer.

Sickness :(

It's been a long time since I posted. I was pretty busy the last time I was going to post, and then I just spaced it. I was goign to post after my meeting with my sponsor on Friday, but I got the flu, and haven't anything but play loads of prototype killing off the infection (in game and real life... i hope).
Don't drink anything that can burn your mouth while you are sick. e.g. hot soup, hot chocolate... I did. And since my immune system is weakened right now, I got canker sores ALL over my mouth. I have like 15 on my tongue right now, and I have a speech tomorrow. Not fun.

This week I don't have too much to do. Just make the Shrinking Generator, and that's about it. You take 2 streams of keybits:
and where the top line is one, you put whatever is in the same slot on the second one into our new stream of keybits. The period is much longer.
In this example, the new stream would be...
Hopefully I'll be over this sickness soon, I look terrible :(

Download my encryption program (finished!)

So I finally finished my VERNAM LFSR program. You can test it out and see encryption/decryption in action! You can either have it straight encrypt/decrypt (which will yield both the same input and output), or you can encrypt and then change the seed/key values (which is what someone intercepting would try to use as seed/keys if they didn't know what the correct values were) and try to decrypt it and see the garbage text it pulls out.
Runs on Windows XP and above.
Get it here:

This beast took about 15 hours to make (it looks simple but there is a ton of math involved)
