Exclamation Yet another new factoring algorithm\primality test:Digital Coding ??

While catching up on some of my favorite web sites at lunch today, I ran across a post in www.programmingpraxis.com that discusses ( briefly ) a new factoring algorithm called "Digital Coding". I briefly looked at it and also glanced at the paper referenced. Please note that this post was made April 1 so buyer beware, but it sure looks legit. When looking at the above web page, you need to scroll down. If this is hoax, it's a pretty good one as the paper is on Cornell's site and some readers have even posted some comments on the algorithm ( supposedly ). If I weren't at work, I would investigate this right now but I thought I'd post it now for everyone's enjoyment and edification. To emphasize, beware, there are some distinct red flags about this.
