Smiling!

My friend Kristen complains that she can’t get a good photo of me because I’m always making some kind of face. She’s right, I read too much Calvin and Hobbes growing up and now automatically make a Calvin face for every photo. But I made a heroic effort last night and got this one:

I know what you are thinking – someone who wears that much jewelry can’t possibly understand cryptographic hash functions! That’s totally untrue – although I did have to throw out my copy of Applied Cryptography to make room for my earring collection.

  1. You look great, and that line about Applied Cryptography makes me wish someone much more artistic than I am would make a necklace with the Feistel network for one stage of DES or something. :)

  2. I know what you are thinking – someone who wears that much jewelry can’t possibly understand cryptographic hash functions!

    You promised that there was going to be a captcha before you pulled this kind of stunt!

    Also, it’s becoming increasingly clear to me that I need to force the unused holes in my ears again. Battle stations!

    Cute picture, but not convincing. We know you look like the mech-operating avatar girl.

    Two words, “decoder ring”.

    (P.S. the bittorrent guy has posted about puzzle rings he’d like to make a half dozen times, and I had an easier time following your posts about cryptography than his posts about puzzle rings…)

  5. I had to put away all that jewelery my dad kept giving me (for reasons I have yet to discern) to make room on the shelf for Applied Cryptography…
