If you want to donate money to distributed.net go to eyegive.com they will
give some of the money that they make to distributed.net when you click on
their ads...  It only takes about 2 minutes a day and you can make about
60$/year for your charity...  just think what would happen if 100000 people
all did that...

RC4 is a symmetric stream cipher and is fairly fast. It allows keys up to 
2048 bits in length. It uses an internal table of 256 bytes which is seeded 
with your key, so you can use smaller key sizes too. If the Wassenaar 
Arrangement is passes into law it would be against the law to use this as 
my .signature:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -0777-- -export-a-crypto-system-sig -RC4-3-lines-PERL
&S;print pack(C,$_^=$s[($s[$x]+$s[$y])%256])}sub S{@s[$x,$y]=@s[$y,$x]}

To unsubscribe, send 'unsubscribe rc5' to majordomo at lists.distributed.net
rc5-digest subscribers replace rc5 with rc5-digest
