Rants, rambles, news and notes from another geek

Geek Notes 2003-12-20

Here are a few interesting things I found last night.

  • Famous Unsolved Codes and Ciphers - Are you a bored crypto genius? Some of these are old.
  • MUTE: Simple Private File Sharing - Apparently designed from the ground up to deal with the RIAA snooping.
  • Teach Yourself Emacs in 24 Hours - I’ve been thinking about learning emacs for years. Historically, I’m a vi guy, but I’ve always wondered… so far it is pretty confusing. I like having a shell window and an editing buffer open side by side.
  • Building Disconnected Applications - Paul Laudeman posts a list of useful articles for building so called “smart clients”… Windows Forms applications that work both online and offline. Keep your eyes open in the coming months, because MS has a new application block on the way for just this kind of thing.

Off to bed…
