I’ve decided that it’s not accurate to call the python project a crypto project..yet. Initially it will be a text scrambler of some kind. I’m also taking a bit of time off the project to work on making sure my employment docs (CV etc) are all up to date for the coming year. You never know when you might need something like that on short notice.
I also bought a great book today with a bunch of coding exercises in it. I might again take time off the scrambler in the future to work through those programs, as they are waaay more likely to help me in interviews than that program (at least when it comes to answering technical questions).
