A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

revised General purpose slow/unique hash routine for dup checking of private data, without storing the data itself?
Some that/than typos. Took constants in equations out of italics, while leaving variables in italics. A few grammar tweaks: rearranged a couple of sentences which weren't *wrong*, but did read quite oddly.

The generic name for that kind of thing, @RodMacPherson, is 3D Secure. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express all follow the same standard.

revised Are there any reasonable TrueCrypt forks?
Tidied spelling and capitalization. Made the bullet points match (they're now all the same kind of sentence fragment). Put more words into the link, to make better link text (accessibility).

comment How can I create a password that says “SALT ME!” when hashed?
