Use Navajo as your language in that folder or for your secret files :

Fascinating reads. Thanks for posting them.

The codes were undecipherable back then because Navajo was not a written language at that time, and less than 30 non-Navajo people on the planet could even understand the language at the start of the war. It is now a written language, so I'm sure code based on it wouldn't be as robust today.

Randomly adding a couple techniques for this type of thing that I know work.

1. Stash them somewhere within the 100's of thousands of friggin files on a gnu/Nix OS, in some weird non-standard location. Someone might check your /home/Documents, they're not going to look in /etc/blah/mysecrets.txt. :D Gnu/Nix could care less if there's an extra file here or there, shrugs.

2. Common sense stashing stuff tech #2. Someone can include a TON of info in the metadata of an image. Again, chances of someone seeing an image and thinking hey, let me yank all the metadata out of this sucker to see if anything is stashed in it, errrrrr = 0. Unless you're fecking around with the KGB + NSA etc etc anyway and/or me, I'll just torture it out of you. :D

So it was you behind those 700 MB 'dll' files in windows directories. The customers did look sane as they claimed.

^LMFAO !!! :D

Errrrr, was going to include a 3rd tech for securing your info but it involves a pitbull with rabies and very few people have access to a pitbull w rabies(hopefully anyway), so why get into it ? ;)
