so... anyone have 1760 PS3's lying around

We should make it 1761, so we have bragging rights over the military

How many PS3s would we need to factor a 1024 bit RSA key in one year?

I'd need to know something along how many numbers they can factor in one second. But probably around 2^500 PS3's if they could factor 1024/s. I think, my math could be awful there, but I'm pretty sure it's correct. (Granted, that's in one second.)EDIT: In a year, it would be 4.15141×10^157 computers.

And since the number of computers will double in 7 years, we'll get there in about log(4x10^157/10^9)/log(2)*7=3455 years...EDIT: The TI-Ncourage'll be discontinued by then
