Eric Hughes wrote the first Cypherpunk remailer in Perl, and he said he posted it to <alt.hackers> in two or three parts. Does anyone have a copy of this? Or is there <gasp> an archive of <alt.hackers> somewhere that might have it? Thanks. ObProcmailHack: I once had ten minutes to keep a file hidden from someone who had access to my home machine and my UNIX account. For reasons of plot, there were no disks big enough to hold this file, and no time to split and download it. But: at the time, I had registered a domain with the InterNIC that forwarded everything to <*@domain> to my UNIX account. I was using procmail to sort the stuff that came in via the MX forwarding. So, I uuencoded the file, and then I set up procmail like so: anything that got sent to <loopback@domain> would be autobounced back to my "real" address, and anything that came into my "real" address with the subject "Loopback", would get autobounced to <loopback@domain>. So, I mailed the file to <loopback@domain> with Subject: Loopback. When procmail got the message, and saw it was to: <loopback@domain> it bounced it to my real address. When procmail got the message and saw it was to my real address, but had "Loopback" in the subject, it bounced it bnack to <loopback@domain>, ad infinitam. I left it like that for two days, the file bouncing between my real address, and the machine in Colorado that was doing the MX forwarding for me, until my friend left. -- Michael Handler <email@example.com> Philadelphia, PA Cypherpunks: Civil Liberty Through Complex Mathematics Support the Phil Zimmermann Legal Defense Fund!
