C# .NET - Hash Algorithms - MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512

One of the great problems I have had with OO languages such as .NET and Java is that some tasks, that are as simple as calling a function in other languages, are complicated to no end. One such problem is with the different hash functions in .NET available via System.Security.Cryptography. In PHP if I need to get the MD5 of a string I simply call the built in MD5 function. In .NET I need to build my own MD5 function using System.Security.Cryptography and that, even though I understand why it is the way it is, can get a little annoying after a while. I have taken the liberty of simplifying this process by creating a HASH class that can be plugged into your programs as either a new class or by creating a hash.dll of out of it. The code lets you call MD5, SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512 functions and takes care of the process for you.
