PART 2: Symantec エンクリプション・デスクトップHDDをリカバーする

既に インストール ができた . 次は public  キー と secret キー インポートする 。
セットアップ  アシスタント というウィザード の 窓の 左側 を見たら、ユーザータイプ と言う 部分 がある 。
 そこでニューユーザーじゃなくて、  existing keys を選んだ 。プロンプト の流れ で .pkr と .skr ファイルのフォルダー を選んだ。
そして彼女の古いハードドライブ を S ATA ケーブル で 繋いだから 「enter passphrase to access disk」っていうメッセージが出た。 私は視線をそらしながら 彼女がパスワードを入れてそのHDのホールダが段々出てきた!!🙌

English post at Symantec Connect Forums:
This community for the most part already knows that Symantec PGP Desktop was replaced by Symantec Encryption Desktop, but to someone encountering this software for the first time, this is not obvious. Clicking a Symantec Trialware link, the very next page is a registration form, and then a download for Symantec Endpoint Encryption TW. So as a layperson, I assume that the old PGP product name was changed to SEE, click “download,” and struggle to install the thing. After finally installing .NET, the dependent SEE Mgr and MSI, then the Client in serverless mode, I hit a brick wall. Going back to the forums it was dawning that NONE of the 3 packages I’d downloaded was the right one. Another commenter had posted the correct link and I finally downloaded the SED trialware but it wouldn’t execute, and so I posted the previous questions.

Meantime I started looking into other workarounds, wondering, “Is Symantec PGP Desktop  proprietary encryption? Or, as long as I have the keys and passphrase, can I use any software on any platform to decrypt?” I read the Wikipedia entry on PGP and confirmed I’d gotten the software names confused (easy to do!)
I did another Google search regarding the SED installer which would not open: I think the registry might have been corrupted by the brute uninstall of the SEE Client, so I tried 64-bit on a different laptop and it opened and installed fine!
Then there was the problem of the license key…
At first, like these commentors, I thought there was no way to activate using the product key I received in my trial email.  
The “thank you for trying SEE (confusing wrong product name again)” email sends a temporary product key that is too long to fit in the allotted spaces. A video instructionn said to paste the whole thing, but I was on a separate machine from my email, so I just typed.  But it worked — just cut the key in half and copy the latter half of digits only. (They email you a 12-segmented license key, but only use the last 6 segments.)
After installing and licensing, in the User Type section don’t select New User. Rather, select Existing Key option. Then follow the prompts to browse to the directory containing your original .pkr and .skr files. We plugged in the old HD with a SATA USB cable and a pop-up appeared “Enter passphrase”. So we were able to recover all her data.
(In case anyone else comes across this same situation — that is, having keys and passphrase but cannot get an old copy of PGP Desktop or a working trial copy of SED — try looking into other software, such as GPG Suite (Mac) or GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG, Linux) for recovery. See this discussion: https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/discussions/problems/964-migrating-from-pgp-to-gpg-import-private-key
and this https://www.dewinter.com/gnupg_howto/english/GPGMiniHowto.html#toc3.3 (Import key, no graphical interface though)
Maybe even try to import the key into the old PGP Desktop for Windows? **I cannot vouch for this site bc I haven’t tried it!** https://pgp.en.softonic.com/?ex=DSK-347.2
Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could comment on this ‘decrypt by importing keys into other software’ option.)

Yes, I’m sewing!

So “vents” are apparently slits. By process of elimination and also by process of tearing out my hair for hours, I’ve deciphered my first garment pattern.tmp_30304-20170116_2252001827235078

Special thanks to YouTube and the rest of the interwebs for helping me unlock the jargon of “Simplicity” New Look 6312.

Ok, I admit, I chose the wrong pattern for my first project, what a newbie, indeed! But it came out not too shabbily!

Next I made not one, but TWO little zipper pouches. Again, YouTube gets my gratitude and praise: The Crafty Gemini has some great tutorials.

My first zippered pouch, made using my own fabric design as well (Koi Pond)

Second pouch, made with fusible this time instead of quilting

What to make next? I have a few precious swatches of my own Spoonflower designs, but they are on the smallish side. The tutorial hunt begins anew!

Taniku shokubutsu

Taniku shokubutsu, or “spoiled child”, according to Weblio‘s definition of the word “succulents” in Japanese:

translation of succulent in Japanese

I guess a spoiled child would probably be ta-niku (have plenty of meat)!

I had absolutely no IDEA about the succulent-verse online until I photographed the adorable little things as I was walking one day. Peeps are real serious about these plump plants! Using the PRISMA app, I made a colorful fabric pattern out of some little succies I photographed while walking near Date Street in Honolulu, HI.

Then using the Prisma app on my phone, I applied different filters to the photo:

Then I took a screenshot of my phone and opened it in Photoshop (CS5, version 12.0). You can also save the photo or e-mail it to yourself. (Prisma cropped my photo so I had to run it twice, once on each side of the photo.)

screencaps

After cropping out the phone stuff and the app, I aligned and joined the 2 halves of the photo together into 1 layer. Then I made a backup, duplicate of the entire layer and turned it off, just in case I messed up later.

Next I used the Lasso tool to duplicate a few flowers. I just traced around the edges of a flower and Copied as New Layer a few times, until I had a few extra flowers to be used later as ‘filler’.

Then I used the Offset filter (select menu Filter>Other>Offset) to turn the picture into a repeat with four corners.

Offset filter applied. Now just gotta fill in the center area with some filler flowers.

Using my new flower copies, I filled in the blank space in the center where the four corners meet. Then I used the Smudge tool to blend the four corners together.

I think it came out pretty well, don’t you?

Artistic Process – Where Cool Pillows Come From

I grew a few gray hairs creating this Cosmic Damask fabric pattern, but it was way worth it! From pencil sketches, scanning, and then repeat process. You’ll need some tracing paper for this, unless you prefer using a drawing app with a digital stylus.

First, I scoured the web for a nice old damask pattern. Here’s what a quick search might turn up — almost any of these will do the trick:

damask-image-search

Now print out the damask pattern you just found. Print on regular paper, in a size that is easy for tracing.

Lay the tracing paper over the damask printout. Now this is where your artistic vision and skill come in! Think of a theme and start filling in the damask area with your own doodles, like mine below:

cosmicdamask-002

You can scan the tracing paper and continue to work on it in your photo editor software.

Or, you can do a repeat pattern by hand on paper, old school style. (madamchino on Instagram)

The only activity I ever enjoyed more than drawing…

…was reading, back when library cards were blue cardboard squares. It took me on quite a long detour in life, as instead of continuing fine art after LaGuardia HS, I ended up majoring in English.

The third page of my newest pad of paper was devoted to words, and the word “word”. Literally, kotoba, in Japanese, and in shining fuchsia, purple, and red. UPDATE: Customizable prints are here via Zazzle. Add your name, a greeting, etc.

UPDATE 7 June 2019: I’ve closed my Zazzle store due to their April 2019 change of policy. My Redbubble store is still open here: https://www.redbubble.com/people/studiozandra/portfolio/recent

A trip to Sam Flax on Third Avenue in Manhattan turned up yet another silky surface for pens — Borden and Riley #234 Bleedproof Paris Paper For Pens 11X14. It’s 108 lb weight, rich and heavy and the pens just dance across its surface. I highly recommend spending some time with this paper. Use caution when erasing pencil guidelines after inking, though; you will pick up some color if not thoroughly dry, and if you favor kneaded erasers, use a fresh one to avoid smudging.

年に一回書いたららくですね。もうニューヨークに帰ってアメリカン生活に戻ってしまった。漢字の読みはもっとひどくなったけど。まだ仕事見つけていませんが、とってもいい新しい友達作ったことができました。

ちょ~う久しぶりだ!!!!大変申し訳ございませんが、ちょっと忙しくてブログの時間は最近あんまりなかったです。だんだん日本語のしゃべり方が少しよくなったけど、読めるのはまだまだですね。
明日、実家に変えて、仕事面接うけます。ニューヨークで国語のteacherになるための特別プログラムに入って見たいと思います。十日間だけでみじかすぎけど、しょうがないんです。学期とちゅうで行くことはちょっとしつれいじゃないか?と思ってたけど。優しい校長と教徒先生が年休くれましたのでかんしゃしてます。さああ。。。面接どうなるか。。。?がんばります!
