Back to business

Sign in to follow this  


After a great Memorial Day weekend I got back to work on my archival system.

What I did...

First I spent some time restructuring all of my library projects and files (needed to be done). Next I implemented a fast key encryption algorithm using a random byte cipher. It'll be good enough. It can be broken using a brute force attack but it will take quite some time to do that. [smile]

Once the encryption was in place I began work on the archival class and I am happy to say that some 14 hours later I now have a working archival library with optional per-file encryption and a dynamic directory tree. I'll need to finish up all of the loose ends tomorrow and begin working on the GUI tool for it.

Man, you did more work than me. When I needed something similar, I just used zlib so I could use Winzip as my GUI.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both...

...I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
