    Anyone really good with RSA encryption/decryption? If you are, try http://www.rsa.com/rsalabs/node.asp?id=2093" [Broken]. Just remember to split half the money with me if you win.:biggrin:

    I think the best bet would be to write some code to factor it, doing it by hand would take a rather long time :biggrin:

    I dont think being good with encryption would help either, I think that we would need some rather powerful PC's, or grids of PC's to do it.

    Probably more than that.

    Like connect all the PC's together in the world or something.

    :biggrin:. I wonder how the other people won. How does one decrypt RSA anyway?
