Shortly after I sent the message, it occurred to me that TrueCrack's 15 p/s might be for just one thread, too. The screenshot you have at http://16s.us/TCHead/ shows Serpent and Whirlpool instead of RIPEMD-160 and AES, which are apparently the default. Is this just to show that TCHead supports non-default settings as well? Is the 50 p/s speed for RIPEMD-160 and AES (thus directly comparable to TrueCrack's)? Alexander
