Useless Stuff

Here are all the small tiny stuff that I made to make life easier.

Automatic Build Revision Generator Tired of not knowing exactly what build you are debugging on firmware or other software? Well this is a small program that increments the build number in a header file that you can run at compile time. This will increase the build number automatically. Full code and downloadable executable are provided.

Blowfish Encryption Tool Do you want to encrypt messages, or files securely, fast and without having to pay for software? Well, here is a small command line tool, fully open source, that you can use to encrypt whatever you want!
