revised Can string lookups be vulnerable to timing attacks like array lookups are?
added another example to show that it isn't a new concern

revised Diffe-Helman Exchange result is always 1
note that g doesn't have do (and typically doesn't) generate the whole group (thanks poncho); link to various posts about DH parameters

revised Calculate the security of a cascade cipher
made notation for keysize consistent; there were three versions of "k" for it.
