 ** Subject:  WE FOUND IT!
 **         "Strong cryptography makes the world a safer place."
 ** That's the message RSA has been waiting for us to decipher.
 ** And we did it!
 ** The correct key (8558891AB0C851B6) was reported to RSA Data Security
 ** shortly before midnight last night (Mountain Time).  RSA's automated
 ** server acknowledged our win!
 ** The winning computer is a Pentium 90MHz, operated by iNetZ Corporation
 ** of Salt Lake City, Utah.  Their employee, Michael K. Sanders, was the
 ** individual who was running the DESCHALL client.
 ** Congratulations, Michael.  And congratulations to all who participated!
