Hi All,

Thinking about this 10th year anniversery, I think it might be a good idea 
to revist some of the challenges for giggles.

That is, run the rc5-48 and rc5-64 (and others) challenges again. This 
would give a great indication on the differences between computing power 
then and now. How many days now it takes to crack some of these old 
challenges and it should also inject some new life and maybe some more 
interest into distributed computing.   72 bit is/was fun for a while, but 
it seems to be dragging on and on and on now, interest is falling in this 

Its just a thought to inject new life into the projects.

What do you all think ?
