    Wikipedia has a cryptology portal. I understand about 5% of it's content but it's an interesting read nonetheless.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Cryptography

    I've done some fiddling with it over the years. Nothing special just "mixing up" different ideas to see what I come out with. No point, I was just interested.

    EDIT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_cryptanalysis. Awesome.

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Define "it doesn't work".

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Another useful thing to have if you're just encrypting text is an ASCII chart. I actually have one in my pictures folder and a link to it in my quick launch bar. It's the most deliciously geeky thing I've ever done.
