Thanks, guys. I'm usually not so easily surprised. I'd just ignored the
posts until Curt Purdy <purdy at tecman.com> replied, at which time I went
back and reread them. I've got nothing but respect for Jay; he's a sharp
guy. Hence the amazed confusion at seeing c.meinel@...traq.org as an
apparently valid email address.

It's just as well I'd replied, just in case some poor innocent was
considering anything in either of those as worthwile. Who knows? Perhaps a
couple of newcomers to the field went off and wandered through the
attrition archives. Plenty to see; it's a good education, of sorts. For
those to whom those pages had all new (or mostly new) information, next
stop is Bruce Schneier and back issues of Cryptogram. Then go visit
cryptome. Finding any of those is an exercise to the reader.
