Right.  I's also suggest that everyone doing this math should also look
up examples of large numbers.  Applied Cryptography prints a list right
after the introduction (page 18 in my edition) for a good reason.  For

Age of our planet .: 10**9  years
Age of the Universe: 10**10 years
Our planet has ....: 10**51 atoms
Our sun has .......: 10**57 atoms
Our galaxy has ....: 10**67 atoms

And now consider the 10**50 messages djb assumes.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
