Yeah, that's what I meant to say.

Found a very interesting page on md5sum. It's:

http://hills.ccsf.org/~jharri01/project.html

"So why does MD5 seem so secure? Because 128 bits allows you to have
2128=340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 different
possible MD5 codes"

Lots of good reading for insomniacs.
