in reply to Encrypt Binary Data

What's wrong with the modules you listed? Have you tried them with binary data? Where the PODs for those say "$plaintext" they don't mean plain text in the sense of ASCII, they mean "plaintext" in the context of cryptography-- which is to say, "the unencrypted data".... as opposed to the "ciphertext", which is the encrypted data.

[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
