Translate mailto links to ASCII, fight spam.

Overview

E-cognito is, in short, an text-to-ASCII entity translator. Type a string of text or a single character and click "Translate". E-cognito will then present you with the ASCII equivalent of your text. However, I originally created it with spam smashing in mind. I use this little app to translate mailto links to ASCII so that they are essentially hidden from address harvesting bots used by spammers. Although this technique doesn't end all spam, it does help reduce the volume.

What's new in E-cognito

  • Added recent strings popup menu/combo box. This stores recently-encoded strings.

  • Added 'Clear Fields' menu item, with keyboard shortcut.
