Ministry of Propaganda - 19/Dec/2004: "Encryption"

[Previous entry: "Must Have Been a Rough Game"] [Home] [Next entry: "Huh? Say what?"]


My original plan for this weekend was to work on the Scotland Winter 2004 travelogue. But then I got sidetracked: Instead of reviewing pictures and writing pages I somehow decided it was time to learn a bit more about encryption. So I went away and installed PGP 8.1 Freeware. Then it was time to integrate it with The Bat!, which I use as e-mail client. Most of it wasn't too difficult after reading up about it on various websites (apologies to my non-German speaking readers, some of them are in German only. They were just better than some of the English pages I found):

I think I've got everything working now, my public key is available on my my personal website and also on this blog (my PGP public key). When I visit my parents and sister over Christmas we will probably install it on their laptops as well.
