Re: 1190: "Time"

I want to know this. Why has it been assumed that the pix filenames are hashes of anything? In my view, they are simply random strings. That is also a theory that has been put forward. But, not one that causes much conversation. If it's random, it's random. If it's a hash, we might be a...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I want to know this. Why has it been assumed that the pix filenames are hashes of anything? In my view, they are simply random strings.
