The Amiga RC5 Team effort enters PowerPC age

The Amiga RC5 Team effort is proud to announce the availability of the PowerPC version of the RC5-64 client, which boosts performance by a magnitude compared to the conventional 68k client available hitherto. This also signals a new era as Amiga PowerPC software is emerging to show the way to the future of alternative computing. The Amiga RC5 Team effort seeks to harness the enthusiasm of the Amiga community and thus bring exposure to the platform and its reemergence in the hands of Gateway 2000 by competing in the RSA Secret Key Challenge contest: to break the RC5-64 key.. The team is currently ranked 7th overall out of over 12000 teams, thereby showing the vitality of the community.

If you haven't heard of the effort, are interested in encryption and safety, would like to utilize your computing power to its fullest, or simply want to help the Amiga, you are more than welcome to visit the effort homepage at below address.

The Amiga RC5 Team effort is also providing a mailinglist as a forum for the discussion on above topics and the effort in general.
