Seems like most of the posts in here are about folding...

I've been running the distributed.net project with my AMD machines since the RC5-64 days. AMD chips always own at RC5... well, they don't own the PPC clients, but they own Intel /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Anyway, just wondering if anyone else ran it...

Forgive my ignorance but what is the "key" you lot are looking for?

RC5 is an encryption algorithm, and the key is used to decrypt the message. A brute force attack of trying every possible key takes a very, very long time which is where the distributed computing part comes in.
