In my other mail I wrote:
I have the upload helper active here and CHK_encoding bears 2 files what
may match the time (today) when I have tried to save the actual file.

Now is there a way to read "private/secret" and "private/convergence" to
decode them? If yes, can someone write a script or tell me what to do?

I think that these two files (both not a ZIP file) are encrypted with
secret and convergence? Or what happens with the file when the upload
helper is available?
