That's the problem I pointed out!!! "Just less efficient" can't be
accepted for DES-II-2 challenge (it's my opinion).

I remember the policy used by solentuna group. The block had a time-out
of 24 hours (or 72 I don't really remember). Ok it was really short and
some computers can't participate (some which are not permanently
conected to the Internet). But for short time challenge, is not a good
solution ?
