Thanks so much for the details and super quick replies Filippo and
Nikola, I really appreciate it!
I now have plans to MD5 and prefix a "namespace_" to the transient key.
I'm soooo glad I asked for help! I owe you guys an Oregon micro brew. :)
Have an awesome day!
P.S., (mostly a note to my future self):
In my previous e-mail I gave this example:
Looks like that second argument doesn't work like how I thought it did ...
Apparently it's a string that's used to salt a call to:
hash_hmac('md5', $data, $salt);
For my needs, it's looking like I should just use PHP's md5($str) function.
