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.

Yeah. Problem is that 99% of the people do not donate. Which is OK, but what makes me sick is that companies do not donate. That said, I don't think that asking money for AppImage binary solves anything.

@nev Thinking generally really. Some software you use (and what to have the latest upstream version) Say it would cost 20 USD or something :)

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.).

@superruserr Those things are heavy reading...been there done that :) Good luck!

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.

@ScottMortimer There is actually. Android code is pretty ready already, and there will be a release during the summer for Android :)

@alcinnz The keynote is pretty good. Nothing really new for me in that, but it explains things very well.

@artsyhonker Yeah I actually have a creator account there (related to other stuff I'm doing). I might try the donation route, maybe sell custom programming and support.

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.
