[Translation] Apple in 2019 is Linux in 2000


Note: this post is an ironic observation on the cyclical nature of history.

[Translation] Ken Thompson's Unix Password


Sometime in 2014, in the dumps of the BSD 3 source tree, I found the / etc / passwd file with the passwords of all veterans such as Dennis Richie, Ken Thompson, Brian W. Kernigan, Steve Bourne and Bill Joy. The crypt algorithm was used for these hashes ( 3) based on DES - known for its weakness (and with a password length of maximum 8 characters).

So the problem was solved, over which they racked their brains for as many as 65 years: can each of the natural numbers from 1 to 100 be expressed as the sum of three cubes? The problem formulated in 1954 , lies precisely in this: x3 + y3 + z3 = k. K is each of the numbers from 1 to 100; the question is, what are x, y and z?
