that's such a shame.  there is so much CPU power out there that is being
wasted that could go to help this worthy cause.

i'd love to run this.  i'm completely taken by the concept, but it's just
that SET@Home and rc5 all seem kinda pointless to me, but for once there

if we want to help.  agrivating. [sic]
