This looks good to me.

Please approach Blowfish sooner rather than later.

In Accomplishments above, you don't mention any of your work on using
multiple GPUs at once - although I think you did some work on this.
Does this mean that you did not actually "accomplish" anything in that
respect?  It'd be helpful if you let us know what you tried and what you
observed, even if the goal was not achieved.

Thanks,

Alexander
