Besides, I think its time for us to move in a different direction.  We and
the EFF have proven that current encryption standards are too weak. I have
no problem working on RC5-64 until a new project can be attacked.  But, I'm
getting sick of working on encryption methods and a couple of PCs that I
have access to are already working on GIMPS, d.net could move WAY faster
than they could/are... we have SO many more users.  Meanwhile, we can just
hit the newer contests as they come up.  For example, work on GIMPS and when
DES-III arrives, go to work on that then go back to GIMPS.  

Whatever happened to that chess project thing anyway??

	I have the feeling that d.net is unlikely to win any more RSA
contests.
