So you got around 350k c/s on GTX 460.  That's good.  How does it
compare to oclhashcat?  My guess is that it's about twice slower, is
that right?  Of course, being slower is not great, but we're getting
somewhere. :-)

OK.  I am most interested in improvements to sha512crypt, though.

Yes, it be nice to see some (working) OpenCL code from you soon.

Thank you!
