RC5 crypto

Sure there is on www.distributed.net Right now there are projects for 
cracking the RC5 crypto and finding Golumb Rulers.

My clusters have been running a lot of RC5 blocks, although im not even
close to the lead somewhere at 3000d place :( It gives me a rough overvew
of how much utilized the cluster have been, i know the max and the min,
so i see if it have been working at X%. (A very bad excuse to have it 
running though :).

I have it turned off right now though since im trying to track down a 
network error (atleast i think its a network error), and i dont like to 
run it on production machines. But its fun for us geeks!
