So we could save 50.000 years :-S

According to the website:

	  The odds are 1 in 1,508,149 that we will wrap this thing
	up in the next 24 hours. (This also means that we'll
	hit 100% in 1,508,149 days at yesterday's rate.)

so that is 4132 years... So do your optimization, so we can finish 
RC5-72 45783 years ago :-D
