So, I wrote a lot of HaXoR software, subscribe to several mailing lists, and generally have a pretty visible online presence. I do my best to hide the email address I use for “real” purposes, allowing the public to see only web forms that hide the email address (even if you “view source”). Even still, I tend to get some pretty entertaining email. Most of the time it is from script kiddie wanna-be h4x0rz from Brazil, but occasionally I get something really strange…which leads me to the following email.

I can find all my relatives….forget the fact the Enigma is a pseudonym. I wonder if there really is an Enigma family out there?
