Randy:

You processed an RC5 block...

> [01/13/98 17:16:09 GMT] Block: 00004F3D:40000000 ready for processing

Means it's now cached one block in memory from file, while it cracks
another.

keys)

Means it cracked the rc5 block (easily noticible as a 66x block)

means your buff-out.rc5 file is incompatible with the new rc5 client or
you're now over your threshold as listed in the rc5des.ini.

Means it's now cached that block in memory from file, while it cracks the
00004F3D:40000000 DES block.
