I tend to be a rather outspoken critic of using frameworks or libraries for the sake of using Great New Thing X, and especially for the sake of doing Easy And Basic Thing Y. Especially when it comes to Drupal or jQuery; I prefer my coffee black (http://jsfiddle.net/GRMule/SvPUk/)

comment Relative security of a Vigenère cipher

comment Relative security of a Vigenère cipher
Thanks for the info! It was hard to decide which answer to accept, since they basically all say "don't!" (with varying degrees of exclamation). I went with @mikeazo's answer because I appreciate that phrase "An attacker who can break SSL will have no problems breaking Vigenere.", and I guess that is the bottom line. Thanks again, +1
