Re: wanted opinions: Powercrypt 2000 (text encryption)

I looked at about 20 of the AES implementation's 538 lines, and it
does not look optimal. But unless you're DJB, it doesn't have to be.

I know who DJB (Dan Berstein) is, and of his many contributions (AES
timing attack, SALSA20, POLY1305, etc) as do most here.

I feel stupid for asking, but it seems you are saying this tongue in
cheek, and I want to get the joke.

"But unless you're DJB, it doesn't have to be." <<< What do you mean?

Thanks, Mike.
