Honestly I was only partly in it for the money.  The odds of me ever winning
it were infinitesimally small, however the odds of one of us winning it were
much greater, and therefore dnet would have got their cut of the winnings
(which doesn't seem like a terrible idea).  I'd already pretty much switched
to OGR (only doing RC5-72 when I ran out of OGR blocks after straying too
far from my pproxy).  With the news of the withdrawal of official RSA
funding I find the only remaining reason for cruncing RC5-72 is stats -- and
I can get those with OGR as well.  I've increased the number of OGR blocks I
download now and should find myself crunching RC5-72 much less often (if at

I vote keep RC5-72 running for those that want it but downgrade it to the
secondary project (ie. all the clients will default to OGR instead) and the
'winner' won't get any prize money...
