Back on Nov. 25, 1942, a German sub encoded a message with its Enigma machine, and last month Stefan Krah cracked the code. It took 2,500 computers networked via the Internet to find out the sub’s position and course. Another code was broken this week. There is apparently one more code to be broken, so if you want to volunteer your computer’s processing power, go here.
