I was looking at the stats page.  Currently we are averaging about 12
billion keys per second.  At this rate would it take us 48 years to
crack the key (given that the we need to solve all the keys before
success).

Perhaps my calculation is wrong (if so, please correct), but I suspect
we need a lot more processing power (i.e. a lot more computers in the
network).
