Note that there's relatively little speedup to be had for SHA-512 by having mask mode on GPU - maybe "only" 2x or so, compared to having those candidate passwords fed by the CPU. So I think SHA-512's mask mode on GPU is not a priority to be done before the contest. Out of the SHA-*'s, SHA-1 is more important (most speedup possible), next is SHA-256, and only then SHA-512 and Keccak (slower, so less speedup). There's also raw MD4 (huge speedup, but relatively rare hash - yet may be seen in the contest). And I hope we won't see SHA-0. ;-) OK to postpone LM. I thought it would not be that difficult for you due to your experience with descrypt, but overall I agree it's less trivial (and, besides, it's quite fast on CPU). Alexander
