No matches on Google for "Rolling-Phung" (except UQM dialogue), doesn't show up in any course or book on cryptography I've ever seen... It certainly isn't a known encryption algorithm.

Well, yes. That's hardly unusual for anyone studying Computer Science at a decent university.

Yeah, we can hardly be expected to know about Rolling Phung algorithms until we discover hyperspace, at least!

Wonder why it's called rolling phung. Did some guy named phung think of it while rolling down a hill?

I think it would have a "rolling" effect on an X-Y chart if you plotted it... hmm

Perhaps it is related to the collapsing Hrung disaster of 03758?

I just mean that in that time we need to 1.combine into one goverment.
2.discover hyperspace and build ships that can go TO hyperspace.
3.we need to meet lots of races. 4.we need to be atacked by a race called the ur-quan.

I'd say that we'll turn into, or will be consumed by a technological singularity in less than 50 years.
