I sent about 50 emails less than a week ago to students at MIT with
names starting with the letter A. I asked them and their friends to
join the challenge and get their school higher on the standings. It
seems to have worked! I encourage everyone to email other edu's that
are low on the standings.

This is the email I sent them:

I don't know if you have heard about the DES Challenge that is going on
but I encourgae you to join us! RSA has a $10,000 prize for the person
who can crack their DES-encrypted message. If you join the DESCHALL
group and find the correct key, you get $4000 of that for yourself.
There are nearly 4,000 hosts working on it right now. MIT is THE school
for Computer Science and you already have 29 people working on it and
are in 20th place. I encourage you to join the group and encourage the
rest of your school to do so also. Make headlines, crack the code!

Please visit this site if you are interested in helping crack the code.
