Submission + - how secure will cyphers be in the future?

GillBates writes: "Lets say we have a cypher that takes e.g. 3*10^6 years to break. What can be said about the same cypher in 10 or 20 years, when new cryptoanalysis methods are found and Moore's law applies? How long would it take to brake that cypher? How much does the different method's ladder play role in the future (in the future we have many more analysis methods to apply to a cyper)? Thanks for Your attention. Hope to receive an answer."
