    Actually, the NSA has no authority to terminate persons. It's only the
    shadowy figures in the corridors of power in Washingon DC who do. :o) BTW
    (going offtopic here) did anyone ever see the Sneakers movie, about that
    "black box" that would instantly decrypt almost anything? It sounded
    *exactly* like a quantum computer to me - from what I understand from
    cryptology and quantum mechanics (not that I understand it completely, who
    doesn't?), a quantum computer would have the ability to solve all types of
    complex equations almost instantly - and that will be the death knell to
    most of the current crypto-technology we employ. Sinister implications
    there for PGP and triple-encrypted DES.
