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 Is it better to have a camera hidden or visible?
Tided grammar of opening and closing paragraphs; completely rewrote middle paragraph. Removed redundant words from title: this is Security SE, so the security point of view can be assumed.

revised Why does PGP work with the CC field in e-mails?
RFC 2606 domain names. I don't care about /email/ vs /e-mail/, but at least be consistant one way or the other. Other grammatical tweaks and typo fixes (e.g., o -> to).

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.
