I dunno. I think that with a lot less students using up University
Computer resources for real work, that will leave a lot more CPU
cycles free for DES-cracking. Besides, looking at the stats, it would
appear that a lot of the CPU work is coming from corporations and
ISP's, so those certainly shouldn't drop off during the summer.
