I found DonationCoder while looking for a good tool or utility to take screenshots for me and make it easy.
I read through the site and it mentioned that members of non-profits and such are able to request a permanent free key. Since I had published a novel that I give away for free, I decided to apply. They got back to me quickly and offered me a lifetime free key! He is very generous and supports others who also donate to charities, give to non-profits and the public, and serve the community...and the tools offered can be quite handy. I am very glad I found DonationCoder and I tell everyone I know about it if they are looking for good utilities or software!

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/).
