Made myself a CipherSaber a few days ago (in Python). Overall, a fun little exercise in practical cryptography.

I patched file the other day to give details on AVI files, mainly because I wanted a command line tool to quickly check codecs. Here's an example of the new output:

foobar.avi: RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 312 x 140, 25.00 fps, video: DivX 5, audio: MPEG-1 Layer 3 (stereo, 44100 Hz)

The patch was included in the new version released a couple of days ago, so go forth and download 4.06 if you want this.


Released version 0.3.5 of sn today.


I've been maintaining the software I compile myself in their own directories under /usr/local for a few years, but the symlinking to bin, man, lib etcetera got quite tedious. Someone suggested using GNU Stow, and I really like it. You just put the software in /usr/local/stow/foobar and run stow foobar. It's the little things that count, as they say, and the minutes saved by using stow and not having to code my own script are going to add up...

Finally found time to release a new version of sn. Check it out if you need a news server...

Well, I became the new maintainer for sn last weekend, and did my first bug fix release today.

sn is a great little news server, very easy to set up and use. (At least compared to INN. :) )
