Happy News!

It seems that the firewire encryptor I wrote for WiebeTech is being enthusiastically received at the MacWorld Expo. There is every sign that my hard work and my client's investment will result in a commercial success.

Bonita and I are very excited about the news, as I imagine my client must be.

I issued my first press release ever, and have been faxing it to newspapers around Maine:

There is news coverage about FireWire Encrypt at MacObserver and MacCentral.

I think MacObserver was confused when James called the passphrase interface an "applet". In their article they call it a "Java applet". It's actually written in C++ and is a vanilla carbon application; we call it an applet because it so simple. I used ZooLib so I can make the UI for Windows and Linux from the same sourcebase.
