True, but for the purpose of Bill's demo it works fine. For that matter,
a 16-bit iv won't get you very far either. I'd be inclined to generate a
large random iv and post it to the server with the encrypted data. But
I'd also worry about putting a database out in the open like this
without good security constraints. Of course, I have no idea what Bill
has in mind here, so ymmv.
