LOL! Thanks, I think :^). All kidding aside, I often
wonder if they'll have to out-source their cycles, though,
just to keep up with something like grid-type encryption,
if such a thing exists. If doesn't exist, I'm sure it will
soon. Hmmm. Maybe they could create a really addictive,
massive-multi-player game (such as EverQuest), release it
for -- AHEM! -- "free," and hide their decryption code
inside of the thing, transmitting small groups of processed
packets back to their servers via an obfuscated path. Hmmm.
I like that idea. :^)
Ok, NSA. Are you guys impressed? If so, I'll come to work
for $300,000.00 a year, all expenses paid, and you'll also
have to find a Sandra Bolock (sic?) clone to fix me up with
:^) :^) :^).
