    Yes , that is an excellent article ..... thanks for posting !

    On a related topic , I notice that Diffie and Hellman were recently given the Turing Award for their work in cryptography ...
    .... well deserved IMO.

    Yes, I saw that! A well deserved $1 million for them also.

    I'm currently creating an activation system built in c# that uses very clever cryptography to not only activate software, but protect itself from edits. That informative article helped me on a learning curve.

    It's just like driving, if you pick up small bad habits you become susceptible to creating small mistakes. I forgot everything I knew then started over. And I though Cryptography was going to be boring.

    ... my edit ^

    Of course they could always refuse it .

    It would be their membership fee to join what is possibly the world's most exclusive club ,
    comprised solely of people who were awarded major academic honors yet chose to turn them down.

    Grigori Perelman is the most recent member I can think of .
    He was awarded the Fields Medal for his formal proof of the Poincaré conjecture
    but decided he didn't want it ( including the money ! ).

    Jean-Paul Sartre declined the Nobel Prize .

    Anyone on MDL that knows of other " members " of this club , please chime in .

    Yeah I know , it's well off-topic .... sorry .
    Maybe I should start a new thread elsewhere on MDL ?

    Suggestions ?
