Gee willikers @doctorow , the Hacker shoop is evolving!
On a more OT note, given that there’s often exactly one way, at a minimum, to crack a problem, cryptanalysis is one of those difficult, playful fields that yields a low probability of very high returns, all for the low cost of thinking about p̶e̶o̶p̶l̶e̶ ̶w̶h̶o̶ ̶s̶e̶n̶d̶ ̶s̶e̶c̶r̶e̶t̶ ̶m̶e̶s̶s̶a̶g̶e̶s̶ ̶a̶l̶l̶ ̶d̶a̶y̶ ̶l̶o̶n̶g̶ Alice and Bob.
