comment distribution for a subset of md5
I am always a little taken aback by birthday problem calculations at an order of magnitude I hadn't seen before. Intuition really fails, usually spectacularly.

comment distribution for a subset of md5
The particular information I was seeking was "Assuming that the human readable strings are chosen independently of the definition of MD5, then the first 32-bit of the MD5 hash of each string is about uniformly distributed". Where can I find a reference?
