Process Tamer and Translator Boomerang
I heard about you from ShellX City, your Find and Run Robot I believe. Process Tamer has become my favorite though. It's pretty much perfect as is. Your site has made it onto my daily surfing list and I'm always thrilled to find you guys have released a new toy. Really that is why I decided to donate - you make this compulsive tooler happy. I really like your business model; it's very very cool of you to take this approach and I appreciate that by supporting you I'm also helping out other folks who cannot afford to donate to your most worthy cause...one more thing: you've really helped out my network's users by releasing the [Google Translator] Boomerang - responses from support are much more amusing..

Mircryption is a security addon for a variety of irc clients (primarily mIRC) that encrypts your conversations for secure private communication.

It is an open source project that was first hosted in December 2001 on the SourceForge website (original SourceForge webpage is still online here).

While mircryption originally began as a single .dll (written in C++) and mIRC script, it now consists of a suite of tools that supports several other clients (including xchat), as well as the psybnc irc bouncer and the eggdrop irc bot program, and provides a wide range of functions.

Features:
  • Channel text, Private query windows, DCC Chats, Actions, Topics can all be encrypted.
  • No need to modify the way you work - text is encrypted and decrypted automatically; encryption status of conversations is clear but unobtrusive.
  • All crypto-related algorithms used are taken from published, common, trusted sources.
  • Encryption algorithm is Blowfish (no known vulnerabilities); encryption keys are themselves stored in encrypted form.
  • User-friendly key management routines; menu driven and easy to temporarily disable & re-enable encryption on a channel, send plain text quicky, etc.
  • Source code is C++ (with MS visual studio project / makefile for xchat) and a 150k mirc script.
  • Supports CBC mode encryption.
  • XChat plugin version runs on a wide variety of unix / linux / macosx machines (http://www.xchat.org/).
