Hi, I just read about this project on Reddit, and wondered whether you
use an algorithm similar to that which I've developed.

It lets you make an unlimited amount of hashes from some data.  So
long as the total length of the hashes you possess are greater than
the length of the original data, you can recreate the original data -
regardless of which combination of hashes you possess.

My use case for this algorithm is very similar to your own project, so
I thought I'd get in touch.
