I'm a fan of Skein and hope it wins the SHA-3 competition next year. One of the nice things about Skein is how quickly it's been adopted by many platforms and implemented in many languages. To that end, I present Skein 512-512 implemented in Bash."

    At least it has syntax highlighting, I'm no expert at Bash, but I don't think anyone would appreciate reading it with no syntax highlighting.

    People have been doing clever things in bash long before there was syntax highlighting. In fact, it took me years to finally accept that as anything other than clutter. Though, I still can't stand colored output of the "ls" command.

    Having cut my teeth using line editors over 300 baud modems (or terminals wired into the mainframe via serial cables), I am sometimes amused to watch people who have only ever had these modern fancy tools when they're in a real environment like a client site. Because suddenly they can't do anything because they're so dependent on these things.

    Now get off my lawn. :-P
