He showed how a DES key search engine could be built for $1 million which can do exhaustive search in 7 hours. Expected time to find a key from a matching pair of 64-bit plaintext and 64-bit ciphertext is 3.5 hours. So far as I can tell, the machine is scalable, which implies that a $100M machine could find keys every couple of minutes or so." (usenet msg) (www).

Welcome to the Planets


Paul's (Extra) Refrigerator


Geeks have hooked everything from soda machines to coffee pots into the Net, but this refrigerator is a first. Paul Haas--who has his hot tub specs on another page--wants to tell us what's in his fridge and how cold it is inside. I'm waiting for the Mystery Tupperware Monitor before I go back.

Democracy in Action: The Electronic Barbershop


This page is a good example of how digital democracy would work if Newt has his way and we all vote, all the time, on all the issues, on the Net. In the Electronic Barbershop we pick Ken's coif: Klassic, New Fresh-Look, or Kompromise. As if I didn't have enough to do, now I'm responsible for some guy's hair. Sheesh.



No more goat sacrifices in my house now that Netscape reads my future. The tarot cards fall where they may--right side up, upside down--but what do they mean? As far as I can figure from the cards I got, I want to be Emperor of the World, but disaster will follow when I assume the throne. Sounds about right.

Lunch Server


I thought I'd seen it all. But thanks to Sho Kuwamoto, a grad student at Purdue, I now have Lunch Server. Each day (to tell you the truth, I don't check it every day) Sho lists what he's having for lunch. Click on the paper sack and he tells all. Now if we just had his mom's phone number, we could rat him out when he's not eating right.

The Bible In Pig Latin


The Bible's been translated into Urdu but not Pig Latin? What's the deal? Connect to this FTP site, which you can reach with any Web browser, and you can download text files of the Ible-bay. Only three books--Enesis-gay, Ob-jay, and Ohn-Jay--are available, though.

The Unofficial Brady Bunch Home Page


The movie may have been a big hit (what does that say about us as a culture?) but those of us who actually lived through the '70s know that the Brady Bunch was simply existentialist TV hell. Even Ward Cleaver had more personality than Mike Brady. This unofficial home page is jammed with Bradymania, from an episode guide to the theme song, with filmographies of the original and film casts in between.

Magic 8-Ball


Forget the Ouija Board; go for the real soothsayer, the Magic 8-Ball. Remember? It was that plastic ball filled with blue liquid that, when upended, gave you vague answers to your questions about the future. Now that we're all high-tech, we can use the Internet's version instead. The answer to your question, by the way, is "Perhaps, but not now."

Jeff Spicoli


Who needs pages dedicated to the famous when the Jeff Spicoli site's up? Spicoli (Sean Penn) was the protoslacker star of 1982's Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and the bane of Mr. Hand (TV's My Favorite Martian co-star Ray Walston). Here you can download Spicoli-isms in both audio and video form, and save them for posterity (or play them on your machine). What better way to honor Jeff Spicoli than to waste time doing this?

Bon Mots From the Supermodels


Sports Illustrated's next swimsuit issue is a long way off, but you can revel in the sheer audacity of supermodels by checking out this page of quotations from the beautiful but brain-dead. "Everywhere I went, my cleavage followed. But I learned I am not my cleavage," from Carole Mallory, is my fave. Hope it makes Bartlett's.

The World Wide Web Dating Game


It had to happen. Fill out the form, send in a picture (digital, naturally), and you too can ask or answer embarrassing questions and engage in double entendres. We all get to vote on the answers we like best, and then read about the date, voyeur style, from the comfort of our married-with-children homes. Requires a forms-based browser.



Those clever folks in marketing--they probably spent all day making up a cool seven-letter word to match the company's phone number. You know, dial (800) FLOWERS or (800) NOPANTS. Clever, but not as clever as you. Just surf to PhoNETic, type in a number or word, and it spills back a list of possible matches so you can give yourself one of those cute phone numbers. Requires a forms-based browser.

POPClock Projection


There are just too many darn people, aren't there? Jammed highways; that long line at McDonald's; OK, even the wait for a simple cup of coffee because some pinhead orders a double latte instead of the real thing. For a depressing moment, hit this page, which estimates the up-to-the-minute population of the United States. For a really big downer, go back to it a couple of hours later and compare the numbers.

The Bermuda Triangle


When you set sail for a three-hour cruise and never return, people are going to start asking questions. Debunking the bunk of the Bermuda Triangle, the world's oddest patch of ocean, this page explores the mysteries and myths and then offers a skeptic's take on the Mary Celeste and other hoary legends.
