Hi All!!!

I don't know if having two groups attack the problem is such a bad
idea. This would help if there is a bug in the DES Challenge program or a
random act of nature (bit-flip in memory) causes one of the clients to
incorrectly report not finding the key. If both groups work on different
keyspaces I don't see any harm done. (Although I would like Rocke to get
his well deserved $6000.)

My two cents,
Ron

p.s. Don't forget the other large distributed projects at www.mersenne.org
when this is done.
