comment Reverse engineering a hash?
@CoreyOgburn, it is more of an obfuscation than anything else. I don't know of any official name for it, but most of the "math" is the same thing used for linear congruential generators for PRNG. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator

comment About Cryptography in a Character Language
Japanese uses something called "Kanji" which are Chinese characters. These characters were borrowed from Chinese over the centuries and the various pronunciations reflect how it was pronounced in China when it was copied, so if the word was introduced 3 times, it could have 3 different pronunciations based on context. The pictograph characters can represent 1-5 syllables by themselves. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji Since pinyin is taught from an early age in PRC, it is a common scheme for entering pictographs into a computer en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinyin_input_method
