Status report. They have been running for 46 days nonstop now. They have punched through about 5 million combinations. This is nice, and still not cracked.
About a week ago I ordered a new comp for me; I feel the need for more power
It's a huge bang-for-the-euro combination. Specs:
Core 2 Duo E2160 @3Ghz
2GB Kingston ram 667Mhz (2x 1gb sticks in dual channel)
And, as I'm not a gamer, didn't waste my time with a graphics card. I will put in one of my pci ones, most likely the best, Ati Rage II+dvd.
Total price 267 euros.
It's a really powerful one, hopefully more like 8x my current best one (this P3). As with all my other comps, I will build the OS for it, to gain as much speed as possible. Also this is my first 64-bit capable machine, so I will make the OS fully 64-bit, to get 10-20% more power for some apps. Plus optimize boot speed, and load parts to ram, I like my operating systems blazing
So, when it arrives, and I finish the OS, this cracking will move onto it. Despite having to start over, I'm quite confident that it, with 2 brutal cores, will take my pass down. It's just a matter, and question, of time.
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
