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.

Wasn't this paper discussed here not long ago?

By the way, this algorithm is completely bogus. It doesn’t factor anything; those results we obtained we just by chance. Happy April Fool’s Day!

My apologies.
Or, as Emily Litella would say, "Never Mind"
