A while back it was mentioned here that Eric Hughes set up Cypherpunk
Labs, Inc, and it was supposed to provide scholarships to
crypto-minded students and offer computational resources for those
late-night factoring sessions.  Did anything ever happen with that?  I

I think Java is going to become a standard to run with.  It's pretty
