Perhaps we can take a break from all the philosophical messages about d.net
policy...

I was home with the flu recently, so I took the opportunity to hack on RC5 and
Java, just to see what kind of keyrate I could squeeze out of a language doing
something it wasn't designed to do.

I put together a sample applet that cracks RC5 keys for 30 seconds and reports
the results. To try this out (it runs in your browser), go to:

Source code is available too if you're interested. Have fun!
