Um, how about a CRC for every character of every line published
electronically?  (hehehhe...  Oh, and of course we'll use 32 bit CRC's of
8 bit characters, of course...)

Hidden text of this message not visible to feds for those without
imagination: (yeah, right) all one would need is to build a table of 255
CRC's, take the 32 bit CRC code and reverse lookup the data. :)
