Thwarted.

Well, the Computer Science department here isn't interested in
participating. They don't see why they should help RSA.

And I was notified by the guys who run the public computing labs that I
was in violation of policy for running the client on some HP workstations.
Said I was using them for personal profit. Anyway, I replied, telling
them that the money goes to the University if their machines crack the
key, and I'm not doing this for profit but for fun, etc....

I doubt they'll give us their blessing, though. Damn shame. With a
somewhat optimized HPPA client, we could have made a hefty contribution.
I'm still running the client on my machine and have plenty of Power Mac
friends who will run the client as soon as it's done. Still, those HP's
would have helped.

Glum,
