Deadlines are closing in and the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train. My public key encryption works just peachy, provided you don't want to encrypt more than 5 characters of text. Any more and it has problems. I can only guess that this is something to do with only having 8 digit primes, when a real RSA algorithm uses 100 digits upwards. OTOH, were I to do that I wouldn't have been able to use and my numbers would only have been pseudorandom.

The AES hasn't moved. Still. It makes me want to curl up in a corner rather than look at that code. It's the first thing I did for my project, back when I thought I could get it all coded up in a couple of weeks. Fat chance of that happening. I have to get the AES bit working, though. If I don't then my project hasn't been worth shit. Especially with everything having to be in so damn soon... I wish I could go back in time and beat the crap out of myself at the start of the year, show myself how much I just wanted to forget it all and stick two fingers up at my degree at this late a stage... but then I would have wasted too much of my life... fuck, I don't know any more.
