Unzipping password protected Zip files

Andy sent me the link too this file.

It is a perfectly legit tool to use to unzip a Zip file that someone may have sent to you, and they forgot the password.

As an experiment, I zipped up a small file and put a password in it.
I have not tried the software yet, but I did download the version that comes with the dictionary.

Here is the Zip file I made if anyone wants to try and take a "crack" at it if they DL that software.

Well this blows...
I just tried the software out and it says the Zip file I password protected does not require a password.

If you right click the saved file and tell WinZip to unzip it too your desktop, a password box does come up.

If you just double click the Zip file, you can see the contents of it and open them.

So much for WinZip's cheesy password protected files you make
They are not secure at all.

Try just double clicking the file too instead of right clicking it, and you should be able to view the contents and open them up.

I am also running the newest version of Winzip also, so that might make a difference, not sure.

WinRar lets you get around winzip's "protection" as well. I like it much better than winzip...MUCH smaller program.

By the way, getting a new stove?

No, actually I have been thinking of doing a gear review on it for the section here.
With warmer weather only months away, people will be thinking about getting out with their rigs and camping.

I have that same stove, and bought it brand new back around '92 or '93.
I have the single design, they must have just came out with the double one.

I have used that oven in my old tent trailer I use to have, and now use it on a portable 3 burner propane stove while out camping.

Works great for cooking anything in it that you need to bake or heat up.
Check out some of those easy recipes they have on that website.
