Subject: Sayantan's Weekly Report #10

My primary linux HDD broke down today after serving for nearly 4years. I
tried to backup the data but bios failed to recognize the drive.
Unfortunately some of my latest works were lost, most of them being
experiments with md5-kernel. I usually push most of my commits to git repo
immediately, but some of my last days work are lost. This shouldn't affect
too much though.

I'll get a new HDD or probably a SSD tommorrow and install everything as
quickly as possible.

Accomplishments:
1. md5-kernel now produce more usable c/s when number of loaded hashes are
large. One of my latest commit is missing in git repo which increased speed
by 5-10%.
Current speed in git repo are:
1 to 10k hahses: 2700-3100 Mc/s
100k hashes: 2500 -2700 Mc/s
1M hahses: 1400 Mc/s
10M hashes: 500 Mc/s
2. Fixed a few bugs with raw-md5 kernels such as segfaults during status
checks etc.

Priorities:
1. Fix speed issues with raw-sha1, raw-md4, nt and mscash kernels.

Regards,
Sayantan
