Has anyone recruited within the Microsoft upper management echelons, to get
a large number of the 20,000 desktop systems on the Redmond campus
involved?  Sell it as a marketing pitch.... Just like the Evangelistas, I
bet Bill Gatus of Borg would LOVE to be able to crow that it was WINDOWS NT
that cracked RC5-64 or RSA-155.   How about at Intel Corp, where they had
that 7,000+ Pentium Pro massively parallel wokrstation built as a demo of
what Intel chips could do?   IBM?  Surely there are a BUNCH of idle cpu
cycles there, too....  

Sure, we've recruited as you've said, but there's far more we can do on
that order....
