Someone was asking me if Titan is still under development. Absolutely it is, actually more than ever probably. There haven't been a new release for a while, but don't worry 2.0 will be released later this summer. titanpasswordmanager.org/

Securely deleting data from SSD disks..Hmmp. I guess the most sane way is Peter Gutmann’s algorithm.

Would you pay for AppImage/Flatpak binary? Given that the source code would be available for free of charge under some liberal license(BSD, MIT etc.).

Sometimes companies asks me to modify my own software for their needs. I'm happy to do that, but not for free. See my hourly rates and services. byteptr.com/hire.html

Shameless self-promotion, but at the moment we're having limited time offer. 25% off from the professional edition. cryptoextension.eu/buy.html

Someone asks me that if I could restore a lost password which was used to encrypt a file using Fort (my encryption software for Windows). Well, of course I can't restore the password. Or break the encryption. If I could, would you trust the software to encrypt your files? :) It's kind of sad to hear customers loosing their work etc.

Planning and thinking how to release Fort (cryptoextension.eu) under an open source license. Core library already is, but what I really want is to make the software completely open source. The problem and the hard part is the fact that I also do need to pay the bills etc. .

We just released Fort 4.1 cryptoextension.eu/. Fort is file encryption and password management software for Windows. Our core components are open source and we're working towards to fully open sourcing everything.

People don't really understand why it is very important to have a different, secure, password for every website/profile etc. Please use a password manager and make your passwords unique.

Every time I hear news like a bridge shut down for hours because some homeless guy left his backpack, or an entire neighborhood on lockdown because some stupid middle schooler wrote shit on FB, I'm disgusted with this national paranoia and overreacting "first responders." Land of the free, home of the brave indeed.

Default colors in Powershell are, well, insane. Finally took the time to create sane color theme for it.

Just found an old project of mine from seven years ago. Efficient port scanner written in C. Going to dust off the code and release it in the near future.
