    at home I'm more like one or two windows, unless I'm doing work while I'm at home, then it's something more like 5, never as much as I do at work.

    Gaming: 1 more (the game)
    General Programming: 2-4 more (2+ putty)

    Use of PuTTY, PSCP, PSFTP and Plink is illegal in countries where encryption is outlawed.

    putty is only illegal in the countries that are a part of the axis of evil, there are very weird laws in the US on using 128-bit encryption in your programs. You may notice that whenever you download a program with 128-bit encryption, they usually have a link where you must say that you aren't in Iran, North Korea, etc..

    But I use Putty at work all day on a government site and so does everyone else at that site.

    Isn't that because if the people who make it (I'll assume they're from the US) are giving 128 bit encryption software to these countries, which the government considers naughty countries? This way it limits their liabilities I guess. It would be like selling guns to Iraq. Sure, it could be for legitimate reasons, but I don't think the government would like it.

    At home:
    1 Game. Fullscreen.
    OR
    2-10 Firefox/IE Windows

    At work:
    2-6 Instances of VS6
    0-4 Instances of VS7
    1-3 Explorer Windows
    0-2 CMD's
    1-5 IE Windows
    1 MSDN
    1 Outlook
    1-2 Visual Sourcesafe Windows
    1 OEM ( Oracle Enterprise Manager ) ( and it's annoying cmd window in the background. God, I wish Oracle would hire application developers. REAL application developers. )
    0-2 SQL+ Windows ( Oracles joke of an SQL client... command line/stone age technology )
    0-2 Notepads
    0-2 Words
    0-2 Visios

    I guess it's 8-20 open application windows, plus the application I'm working on at that moment, which may well be a part of a 3tier client server system. Then I have the other parts running on my machine for testing as well.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    It is Jmd15 encrypted in MD5.

    *sigh* How many times do I have to tell people:
    MD5 IS NOT ENCRYPTION. MD5 is a hashing algorithm. As such its impossible to go from the result to A particular source. You can however find multiple sources that provide the same result (which has already been done, hense why many are moving away from MD5 to hash passwords)

    At work, usually 5-15, with Opera, Outlook, WS_FTP, and multiple copies of Excel, Access, and Explorer going. I've typically got 4-5 e-mails open at a time, too, whether I'm sending them or reading them. I sent 27 emails yesterday and received 29
