I wish my M2-pr233 cracked des blocks that fast; I get about 870 kk/s.
Are Cyrix processors just not able to crack des blocks as quickly as
Pentium/AMD processors?  Seems like Pentium-233-mmx processors crack des
blocks about twice as fast as a Cyrix M2-pr233 (clocked at 187.5mhz).

Also, why do the dos clients not have support for tcp/ip through packet
drivers (there is a port of Wattcp for djgpp that handles this, for
example).  And is the source for the des cores freely available, or just
the rc5 core?
