Cryptographer - Java Edition

So I have finally started on programming my Cryptographer in Java. I don't know how far I will get before the conference, because java handles binary much differently than my language (due to the ease of using strings).

The fonts don't look right because the fonts on the web are most times not fixed width (e.g. i is not the same width as w:: i w iw iw iw wi wiwiwiw iii www)
I have somewhat learned how RSA works (still confusing to me), but once I pad the seed values that I use for my LFSR it should be pretty easy to send an email.
I have also started to use Eclipse. It takes like 2 days to load for some reason (In VirtualBox), and the interface seems so... cramped. Although I did like how it auto completes stuff. I did a few tutorials. It is somewhat nice, but there is just too much stuff everywhere.

Java Cryptography

So I'm finally attempting to start working with Java for my encryption program. It's going to be a while before I can get it to use a GUI. I have finally been able to have it scan lines for input (which is vital), output information to command lines, and interface with other aspects of the program. I still have to learn BigInteger, since I'm going to be using numbers that are numerous bytes in size. (E.g. a 50byte number).
It's going to be interesting...

Edit: Why don't they still use this loader icon? The new one sucks in comparison.
