Hi Kirby,

I'm a 3rd. year PhD student at Indiana University, majoring in Science
Ed.. Desperately trying to keep my colleagues from throwing all the
math out of our science curricula.

I noticed from your way cool videos, that you use Camtasia Sutdio too?

Have you seen this IDE?


Just keeps getting better and better!

Anyway thanks for the all the interesting material, I'm going to learn a lot.

I just stumbled upon your pages here:
while searching for some information on the Enigma machine.

I'm taking a Cryptography class at the UofO in Eugene and was (am)
having some trouble on the topics of factorization and products of
permutations, as it relates to the cycles of the Enigma machine.

Your writings helped me solidify some of my thinking and I've bookmarked
it for catching up with later.

Just wanted to say thanks.  It looks like there is a lot of great stuff
there, and in Python -- my current favorite language.  :)
