    Favourite OS has to be Mac OS X, Linux as second and Mac OS 'Classic' as third. Never been an M$ fan..

    since it was invented.
    It doesn't allow you to send encrypted information, but it does allow you to verify information, without sending the information itself, such as a password.

    Right after it wasn't a one-way hash, it was... of course.

    Favorite OS: IRIX
    Nice and powerful, and very stable.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    does IRIX run ok on normal intel hardware(i mean functioning corretly and like it did in the computer stone age)?

    i like checking out the old stuff, i was thinking about open vms but irix might turn out to be kooler...

    Eh? IRIX is still in exsitence, and currently being worked on. www.sgi.com

    Unfortunately, not. It runs on machines with MIPS processors.

    encrypt
    Computer Science. To alter (a file, for example) using a secret code so as to be unintelligible to unauthorized parties.

    But encrypted data can be decrypted. MD5 is a one-way hash, like Zach said.

    It's all semantics, actually. I'm sure different people will give you different answers. Personally, I think you can call it whatever the hell you want.

    But of course you can decrypt it... Just not uniquely... or within the Sun's lifetime. Minor details, really.

    At any rate, it still falls under the category of "cryptographic algorithm".

    I'm sure it'd be possible to find some old CDs of IRIX 6.3 or the earlier versions of 6.5 laying around somewhere. The architecture difference poses a problem, though.

    Just face it people, if you're not using Windows you're just doing so for the attention of others.

    Nah. I just like to get work done.
