    If someone wants to try the coolest way to use PGP with an instant messenger, at least MSN Messenger, give Spyshield a run, you will love it !
    Instant encryption/decryption !

    BTW, the instructions on the site seems to suggest it will not work with PGPckt versions, but it does as i have tested it successfully with PGP6.5.8ckt, build06
    http://www.commandcode.com/index_flash.html

    In an attempt to make the process as easy as possible, i have made a page which i hope will be of use to those thinking of installing PGP, but don't, thinking the process is complicated :
    http://pages.infinit.net/carbo1/pgpinstall.html

    I intend to do the same for the working aspect of PGP as i did with the install part of it.
    Hopefully this will be available within couple days.
    All this in the perspective of a new user that just installed and faces the question : What do i do now ? How do i use that stuff ?
    Will cover Options, PGP tools, PGP keys, PGP Disk and PGPNET. What each of these are and how to use them, all supported with the use of gifs, of course !

    There are fancy technical books about PGP, but this will be done with the first time user in mind, kinda of "yeah you can tell me, but more importantly show me" !

    Spyshield is really showing what PGP can do in a fun sort of a way !
    Too bad it won't work with Trillian, but it's enough to make me want to use MSN MESSENGER instead of Trillian.  PGP the way it was meant to be !  I love it !


    As for the page i mentioned about PGP, i've got few problems with it as PGP is much more easier to use than it is trying to explain it !
    Could be that i'm not really fit to be a teacher, at least not a good one !
    Anyhow, i will continue to work on it, but here it goes for now:
