okay, so this would be my second application listed here. I'm a (relatively) beginner programmer, and will use C# for this work.
I haven't finished the functional parts yet, about 50% there.
the deal is, I reached a barrier of software complexity, leading to slow advancement.
(btw, if you have suggestions how to deal with it, I'm all ears)
I am going to reorganize my code, possibly as dlls,
and post here very small increments of the gui, adding functionality bit by bit, once it's clean enough.
the basic design is pretty good, but the functioning design is lacking.
(anyone has recommendations how to approach a design phase in software? - this, I know almost nothing about)
so the first versions are going to be entirely fake ones. do nothing. (and won't even look like the real one)
the program is called DST, direct secure talk.
it will be a connection between 2 people.
then it will also be secure, communication will be encrypted. (with a feature that the keys change with increased bitsize every x minutes)
then it will add features like chat, and file transfer. (and possibly one more feature)
I see value in this program, for my own and my friends usage. it will be donationware/charity-ware. but I won't publish the source.
the plan is to post here all the versions, even those who'd do nothing, because it may help me with dedication and self discipline.
I also don't work on it full time, so there will be some time before releases.
anyway, hope you'll like this toy, and hoping it becomes mature.
I'm interested in seeing gui mockups too.
