Steganography is pretty fun. It’s not a secure, safe discipline when you want to actually transmit data securely through an insecure channel, but it’s fun to play around with. A feature of steganography, if implemented properly, is that it’s nearly impossible to prove that you actually transmitted that secret data – unlike cryptography, where it’s easier to check you have a plaintext. Here is a list of all of my steganography posts:
- Steganography and PNG’s
- Steganography and PNG’s MK-II
- Steganography and PNG’s MK-III

Introduction to Programming
I’m currently writing the following series, which teaches programming completely from scratch. It’s more theoretical than most other tutorials, I’ve seen, but that’s only an advantage as far as I see it. I absolutely despise tutorials, where they explain how to do something instead of why we do them. Following is a list of all posts, I’ve published so far in chronological order:
