Subject: Re: Making a thread safe implementation of bitslice DES

Hmm those may be of use to me, thanks. For the first one you linked you 
said it doesn't ignore DES block bits that come from the 3rd output 
character, would that mean that the third character put into the buffer 
would be incorrect? If so that won't be a problem since the first three 
characters of the result are ignored anyways. if not could you explain 
what that means a bit more plainly? I know very little about 
cryptography (as you've probably guessed).
