I’m a fan of TrueCrypt on Windows (still using encrypted HFS on Mac).

Anyways, a new version, 4.3, is out, with many new features. From their website:

We are pleased to announce that TrueCrypt 4.3 has been released. Among the new features is full compatibility with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista, support for devices and file systems that use a sector size other than 512 bytes (such as new hard drives, USB flash drives, DVD-RAM, MP3 players, etc.), auto-dismount when a host device (e.g., a USB flash drive) is inadvertently removed, and many more. In addition to new features, there are many significant improvements. Some portions of the TrueCrypt device driver have been completely redesigned and several bugs have been fixed. For a comprehensive list of changes, please see http://www.truecrypt.org/docs/?s=version-history

Travis mentioned in Episode 51 about hating USB thumb drives with “U3” technology. Especially scary since it shows up as a CDROM drive on windows (usually with an ‘autorun.inf’ file – very bod). Anyways, my buddy Brian just happened to bitch to me tonight about this shitty USB drive he had. I grabbed it up, did some Google searches, and about 5 minutes later, reformatted his USB drive without the U3 partition (and gained an addition 5MB of space).

I don’t know the legalities of distributing it, so I’ll just say ‘do a google search for U3_Uninstaller.exe‘. It’s Windows only, takes only a few seconds to run, and worked like a gem on the drive I tried it on.

Yes – Episode 51 is finally up and episode 52 has already been recorded and will be up later this week.

I’d like to thank all of our listeners for being patient – late February and early March were brutal for me. Two photo shoots (still doing editing work!), writing the biggest grant of my life (and doing all the prep work behind showing that the hardware will do what we want it to do) and getting the flu (hey, I work at a university) all took huge chunks out of my time.

Anyways, we’re not dead – I’ve just been super busy. But I’m committed to getting episode 52 out this week as well, so enjoy!

– Nem
