Weeell we have 20,023 computers (that fluctuates a tad). That's probably about 30,000 cores in the end.

I cant iterate the whole lot - but I can cover a substantial portion more of the keyspace in 5 mins than most could in the 30hrs. I bet 5 minutes will easily get me damn close :)

I'm seeing about 1 million hashes per second on a single core. So, you can do about 10^11 hashes per second on 30,000 cores. At that rate, it will only take you 10^48 years to cover the keyspace.

You won't even cover a fraction of a percent of the keyspace before the sun burns out.
