    I try to keep it under control with less than 5 in the taskbar (email, IDE, a couple of Firefox windows), but when I get to some serious websurfing, all bets are off. I've been told that tabbed browsing could help me on that, but I just don't like tabs.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    I guess I never listed what I normally have open.

    Work:
    Outlook, Opera, MS SQL Enterprise Manager, Homesite (normal)
    Topstyle CSS editor, VB6 IDE, IE, FF, Netscape, Netarrays (from time to time)
    I also run Konfabulator and Winamp at all times.

    Home:
    Outlook, Opera or some game, normally. When I dig into some development work, the above applies, short of Netarrays and the Enterprise Manager.

    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.
    I know the US used to have some crazy export restrictions on encryption software, but I'm not sure if they exist anymore. I seriously doubt that 128-bit software would be restricted, though, especially since the Advanced Encryption Standard (aka Rijndael) supports 128,192, and 256-bit key sizes and it was adopted by the US Gov't/NIST.

    What the government adopts for themselves and what they let us plebs use are totally different.

    That said, I don't believe strong encryption is illegal, but I don't know about the export laws.

    Exporting encryption software to outside the US is illegal. Also, any US citizen is not allowed to sell cryptographic software to any foreign country (even if they don't live in the US). This is also true for other countries that have signed some agreement about it. This is the reason OpenSWAN (I think) won't allow any USian to work in the encryption, and the crypto is hostend in Canada IIRC.

    There is a loophole for free(-beer) software because you're not selling it. For example, this notice from kernel.org
    Code:
    MOTD:
    MOTD:   Welcome to the Linux Kernel Archive.
    MOTD:
    MOTD:   Due to U.S. Exports Regulations, all cryptographic software on this
    MOTD:   site is subject to the following legal notice:
    MOTD:
    MOTD:   This site includes publicly available encryption source code
    MOTD:   which, together with object code resulting from the compiling of
    MOTD:   publicly available source code, may be exported from the United
    MOTD:   States under License Exception "TSU" pursuant to 15 C.F.R. Section
    MOTD:   740.13(e).
    MOTD:
    MOTD:   This legal notice applies to cryptographic software only.
    MOTD:   Please see the Bureau of Industry and Security,
    MOTD:   http://www.bis.doc.gov/ for more information about current
    MOTD:   U.S. regulations.
    MOTD:
    Due to this law(s), if you take crypto software into the US, you can't re-export it, so even if it was acquired outside, you can't take it outside again.

    I haven't look at it for some time though, so it may be inaccurate/wrong.
