Your Amiga (or other) can rest now :)|
Too bad the key was not found by the Amiga team. Anyway we will have more power for new contest with the AmigaOne/Pegasos/Amithlon.
Here are the details.

"I never understood why people would want to spend CPU cycles cracking a 64bit
encryption method. I mean what's the point? Everyone knows that given enough
CPU power it can be done."
IIRC there was a prize for the winning key :) ... its also a very good blizzardPPC stability burn-in test .. my records being 2seconds -> 20 minutes from when i got it to about a month ago and now it doesn't stop until its stopped :)).
I managed to clim my way thru the rankings using my amiga and pc quite easilly but my pc had a partition eatting moment after 2 or so months so i gave up.
"I'm supprised it took so long. But it will only take 1,280 years to crack RC5-72 at this rate!"
That doesn't take into count the increasing speed of CPU's ...
"Far better to spend those extra cycles doing something productive like
encoding MP3s :)"
even better ... encoding high quality divxs or lightwave rendering :))
