Nice to meet you, Frank. :)

As you can see in my mail to Bill, I am not (yet) a crypto coder, but
studying maths & crypto at college (in Taipei, Taiwan, although I am
actually from Germany). I do kow my way around some C/C++ though. Not
so much around Windows though, have been using mainly Debian since my
early teens.

So since you and Bill can probably better estimate that--if there is
something a rookie like me could work and / or learn on, feel free to
let me know. :)
