I just wanted to say that the RC5 effort is important. The point behind it is not to demonstrate that distributive computing works because that has existed since the era of mainframes and is what led to computer networks in the first place. In my opinion, the point is to show that privacy must be protected and inadequate encryption is useless.
If a bunch of "little" computers working together can crack the code, it doesn't take brilliance to figure that much fewer supercomputers hooked together HAVE already cracked the code.
In my opinion that is the point and is why I'm participating. I see that interest has dropped off but I guess everyone has their priorities. For me, I feel that privacy is a fundamental right.
I hope the team members get back on track with RC5.
And if you are totally gone off RC5, but still want to see the team rise, spdsk8r and I are trying to make a "warpcore" of our own. We are making one each, and with a little bit of donations it can work. The most simple way to donate is to use the Go To World browser, use the link from spdsk8r's page. This ensures that we both get referral awards, and you can get up to $20 a month for your own use too!
I believe the latest verison of the browser needs user imput every 3 mins. I have the earlier version which still works and doesn't require you to clock on anything. I can put it up on my server if anyone needs it.
Lets hope spdsk8r's contest will get more people cracking when I send out the email to members.
