From: Dave Horsfall <dave at horsfall.org>

Ralph Merkle, co-inventor of public key crypto, was born today in 1952.
Do you buy things online, with your credit card?  Then you can thank Ralph
Merkle for making it reasonably safe; he also invented crypto hashing.

(Notice that I said "reasonably" safe; it's always a risk.)
