Encryption….Testing

After Learning a few simple and a few complex encryption algorithms I have come up with one of my own it took a lot of time to figure it out. I wanted to see if any one of you is able to decrypt a message encrypted using it to check security as I am planning to use it in a software of mine for software display.

The following message has been encrypted using a 7 letter key. I want to see if anyone even slightly interested in cryptography is able to decrypt it even if you are not in Exun.

If anyone is able to solve this or if you have any queries please post a message in the comments section.

Windows Live Messenger

I recently downloaded the Beta version of MSN Messenger 8.0 alias Windows Live Messenger. After installing and running the software I noticed that as in every version the have changed the GUI but after exploring a bit I was completely disappointed. This is a perfect example of the most buggy software release I’ve ever seen. It takes ages to sign in and it keeps showing some strange error all the time while logging in. When it signs in then anything you do leads to the thing crashing . Send a file and it’ll crash, start webcam n it’ll crash, sometimes even leaving it alone makes it crash! No wonder its in Beta. I am still wondering if Microsoft released it without testing or something. The GUI and the new features are great but too many bugs.

You can download it if you want from here Windows Live Ideas – Homepage
