We tried to reach the Encryptdrop owners, but their Site righteoustech.com is gone.
Encryptdrop, as the name itself implies, is a program for encrypting and decryptipting files.
We saved the latest non-shareware version of this program (V9B),
which still keeps different methods of encryption, for example: Serpent, Twofish, Cast-256 and AES.
It’s a small powerful program for Win32 that makes it’s job perfectly and has a nice interface.
The Encryptdrop programmers never released it for Open Source,
we just hope that they change their mind and continue the development of this program.
Here is direct download of it and a skin made by us for the interface included.

The communication hubs in place at the time the telephone switching offices and the radio and TV broadcast stations were not only vulnerable to attack, they would also probably be the first to go. The Pentagon needed a military command-and-control system that would continue to operate even if most of the phone lines were in tatters and the switches had melted down.

There are moments when you want to come back in the childhood for a short while, because there were so many interesting things that remember cordially till now.
From our Soviet childhood they are Souzmultfilm’s cartoons, Olympic Bear, planetarium, Sportloto lottery, football at the yard. They are pioneer camps at the Black Sea, horn sounds, walking-tours and songs near the campfire. They are walks with parents and friends at the Parks of Culture with ice-cream, fizzy drink and candy floss, and more — Arcade Games.
