A major milestone in yuzu has been reached, as it can now boot a handful of the Nintendo Switch’s more primitive games. Don’t believe us? Take a look!

The developers behind YUZU have done the next to impossible, a few games boot up to the title screen, and now the next step is emulating the GPU on Switch so they can start to 'render frames' and someday in the future we will be able to play them on our PCs.

SecureChatAnywhere_main.gif
Encrypts/decrypts chat messages with AES-128/CBC

I have released SecureChatAnywhere which is a lightweight program written in Java with the purpose of making it easy to encrypt and decrypt any kind of text messages using AES-128/CBC symmetric encryption. The graphical user interface (GUI) is designed as a convenient 'copy & paste tool' for computers to manage encryption and decryption stand-alone, in other words without relying on any kind of external communication.

The encrypted data (ciphertext) output is in Base64 format which makes SecureChatAnywhere compatible with any kind of text based internet communication tools out there such as email, chat clients and online services.

Features:
  • AES-128/CBC encryption with Base64 output Works with any text based apps and online services
  • Handles multiple keys as needed
  • Output copied to clipboard automatically...
