Hi Oleg, my name is Adrian. I am a software engineer, and understand the need for keeping your source private; programmers have the right to keep thier intellectual property to themselves, and with good reason. I have looked at your source, and am in the process of reverse engineering it (not for gain, but rather for the challenge) . I don't mean to tell you this to scare you - looking at your code, you are obviously a good programmer, and I respect you and would not dream of stealing your code. Instead, I am more concerned with giving you feedback on your obscuration techniques. Perhaps contact me, and we can talk? My e m a i l is :

Hi Adrian,

actually, I don't care much for protection and I'm not going to improve it. As usual: small effort solves 80% of problems.

If you are interested in the obfuscation technique, I used POBS:
