Thumbs up Distributed computing project.

Join our team!!! Click here to see the stats:
dfwstangs.net RC5-72 stats page!


Original Post:
Do you guys want to join a distributed computing project? I know there isn't many people that view this forum ( yet ), but I thought it would be cool for us to join a distributed computing team so we could represent dfwstangs computer nerds division I competed in the previous distributed.net RC5-64 decryption contest, but it was just recently completed. They started a new contest just 7 days ago for RC5-72. The advantage for us to join up now is that we wont be to far behind the leaders, and we might be able to hold a high ranking spot on the list when the stats come online. What do you guys think?

In case you don't know what RC5-72 is all about check out this link:
http://n0cgi.distributed.net/faq/cache/29.html

They have version available for just about any operating system, so dont be worried about that The clients work during the computers idle time and basically brute force a encryption code.

Go ahead and download the client from their site and setup your user id's and stuff. As soon as they let me create a team, I'll get us started.

interesting, good reading. Now I just need to get a box up and running that's worth a crap (not to mention a dedicated line at the house of some sort).
