Hey, Dan.

What role does the .ini file play in all this? And is it even necessary? I was thinking of using an .ini file as part of the install process, but I kind of wonder if there isn't a better way. The real positive to this is that the user could go in and adjust their .ini file anytime they needed to change the configuration. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I know that I'm almost finished with this product and it's kinda silly to be thinking about these things now, but the thought did pop into my head.

Hope all is well with you,

Wendy

Wendy, I don't believe I would go this route. Yes, it does make it easy for a user to change their configuration, but as you well know, that makes it easier for them to screw things up. I would stick to your original plan of using the install shield process and leave it at that.

Still working on it. I am close. No reason it can't be shown. I think P is just nervous. Cut him some slack.

Okay, here's some more for you. How would you handle each user's encryption key? Do you think they should be able to adjust it at all or just go with system generated encryption? And do you think that a return document should also be encrypted? For instance, if user A has the software and protects everything and sends a protected e-mail to user B, then the user replies, should the reply pick up user A's encryption? Basically, this is for marketing stuff... I can't decide between showing really how sophisticated the software is, which will bring in the hardcore tech types but maybe scare off casual users, or focus on the simplicity of the program.

Sorry it took a while to respond, Wendy. I was out of town doing a demo for a prospective client who wants a client-server application using an Oracle database in order to process tax payments.

To answer your questions, or at least put in my two-cents worth, I would allow the user to change around certain aspects of their encryption. Particularly if you are going to market this to techies as well as just average computer users. And yes, I would have the reply carry the encryption characteristics of the parent document. But I'm sure there is some way to address the marketing aspects. It's no different than a car. Some people just want to drive the stupid thing, others want the speed-sensitive steering and all that junk. Just tell your clients that they can use the software in ways that are as simple or complex as they want.

On a more personal note, how's the man doing? Any great plans for the holiday?

Thanks for the input. I think I'm just freaking out here at the last moment. My damn brother isn't making matters any easier. Oh well, that's another story.

The man is good. We don't have big plans for the 4th, since he's pretty busy. We'll probably just be kind of lazy. What are you doing for the holiday?

Well, this just sucks. July 4 and I'm at work. Such is the life of a software developer, I guess. Or at least those of us who don't get to telecommute all the time, like you.

So what are you doing for the holiday? I'm sure you're out having fun, and I hate you for it. ;-p

Oh well, I better get back to work. Tell me all the exciting details of your holiday so I can pretend to have a life.

Hey, girl. My 4th was pretty low key. Sorry to disappoint you, but there really aren't any exciting details to divulge. Just kind of hung around.

So what are you working on that's causing you to work on holidays?

I wish we could have seen each other as well. I had to put up with Eugenia all day and Philip did nothing but play with his insects and give me attitude. It was so hard knowing that you were just down the highway.

Do you think you'll have some time to meet this week? I've got some ideas for the novel that I wanted to get your input on.

See you soon!

Went out Fed Ex today. Totally ready, if you ask me. So, how's things going with your new guy? Do you think he'll really leave his wife? Should I start picking out wedding gifts? LOL. Have you been eating lately? You sound wired. Try to get some rest and relax, will you? Still haven't found the article. Wanna send it to me?

Do you have any experience with breaking a legal relationship? I'm fed up with my brother's excuses and delays. And to be honest with you, I think he may be up to no good. I'm not quite sure how, but something's not right. What do you think?

Sorry to hear about your problems. I don't know what I can offer without knowing more about your situation. Even if you never signed an actual contract, you've clearly had a working relationship with your brother to do some marketing work for you so there is clearly an implied contract at the least. I think you would have to prove some wrongdoing or some sort of breach of contract in order to get out of paying him any money you might owe him. If you've been paying him all along, you might just be able to fire him and you two go your separate ways.

Let me know what happens.

PS: Didn't you tell me that the guy you are dating is in law somehow? See what he has to say.

You have to stop stressing over this. You're getting paranoid. I'll come down this weekend and we'll get it out sorted out. Don't listen to rumors... you know how people are. I'll come down this weekend for sure. Okay? Just chill until then.

No, I don't think you're paranoid. You just get tense when you're nervous. Read the article. Sounds similar but it can't be the same. Don't worry so much. Wait till you see him before you do anything. Please don't say anything you can't take back, okay? Sorry that B has to leave town. If you get too lonely, maybe I can fly down for a weekend? How about that?

Call me when you get the package.

Let me know what happens this weekend. Okay?

It's been nuts around here. I've been working on this new HR payroll system. Management wants to cross-train the staff as much as possible so a lot of us are doing different types of work. So in addition to writing code for this thing, I also have to do some of the functional pieces of work. The other day I was writing test scripts and scenarios... can you believe that I have to spend my holiday looking through use cases and business requirements in order to write stupid test scripts?!?!? That sucked!

But that's about it with me. Nothing terribly exciting is going on. What's going on with you? Tell me more about this mystery man you've been seeing.

Things here are good. I think the encryption software is just about ready to be released. There are some issues with P, but that's too much to get into here. I'm also working on this new project. I can't really give out any details, but it's very exciting and could turn out to be huge.

The man is good. We have such a great time. Unfortunately, he is going out of town for several weeks, leaving this weekend, so that sucks. But, other than that, everything is great!

Hope your work gets better!
