distributed.net RC5-72 challenge started
I hope I'm posting this on the right place :
Recently, a new crypto-challenge was initiated on distributed.net. This challenge is like the previous RC5-56 en RC5-64, but this time with an even bigger key : 72 bits.
If you have some not-used processortime, you can help finding the key.
You can get the updated client at www.distributed.net. They are available for most common platforms and processors.

Yeh, I've been working on this one for about 20-25 days so far (however long it's been since it first started). Thanks for posting the link, maybe we can get some more people out here doing it.
If anyone is interested in helping out my team, tell me please via PM and I can get you a link to the page.
Also, if anyone has any trouble getting their distributed.net client set up, I've basically mastered the thing hehe so if you need help feel free to PM me and I'll tell you what ya need to know.
