Re: @Charles 9

I'm not Charles 9 of 7, but my special file is encrypted with pgp and stored on a LUKS partition, along with the pgp binary I use. When encrypting, the plaintext exists in /tmp (a RAM disk) long enough to update, after which it's wiped. Despite some weaknesses in the cipher, I've not read of any instances of small files encrypted with pgp/IDEA being cracked.
