As predicted, the DESCHALL effort has tested 1% of the 2^56
DES keys in the keyspace. We reached that milestone slightly
ahead of prediction at about 3 PM MDT (5 PM EDT) on April 18.

Our *average* rate of checking keys was 800,000,000 keys per second
for the 24-hour period ending 04-18-97.

Our *peak* rate is right at 1 billion keys per second!

1% down, 99% to go! [Maybe less]
