Subject: sun "encryption" lameness  
  
I was checking out my new fangled desktop in solaris 7. or 2.7 what ever  
they are calling it, and i Stumbled across a buttion that said "Encrypt  
file". I was like shit... I took a swig from my 40oz of colt 45 and  
"encrpyted" a plain textfile  
  
overlord:/morph.home/matt$ cat > lame.ass  
NO SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL  
  
overlord:/morph.home/matt$ ls -al lame.ass  
-rw-r--r-- 1 matt users 100 Jan 14 23:11 lame.ass  
  
[after "encrypting" ]  
  
overlord:/morph.home/matt$ cat lame.ass  
uudecode -p <<"endCrypt" | crypt "$1"  
begin 644 Crypted  
:.FXF8Z!U8(ZU#2;.;K#.LCE8N@5K^^3%,?(8  
  
end  
  
You know what to do from here....
