Adding another note... Whoever wants to be sure should use verification with
gpg signature (boot option 'verify'). Though even that is not secure - it
checks for a valid signature, but not for a trusted key.

Nevertheless we should drop md5 - especially if it is an easy task.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
