phrase from nearest book meme

Filed under: Blogging,Debian,General,Ubuntu — kees @ 12:42 pm

Meme from Jono:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

My result:

“The term linear just means that each output bit of the mixing function is the XOR of several of the input bits.”Practical Cryptography, Niels Ferguson, Bruce Schneier.
