Exactly. And my point is that it is only doable in a reasonable amount of
time if you have on the order of 1e5 cpu cores in the cluster. I can do it
for $4M, lower estimate.
Not cheap enough.

Correct. But multiply this by the 25 iterations of DES required by crypt().
So one EFF DES cracker, or better, one copacobana box has a cracking
throughput of 1 hash every 100 days or so.
Not good enough.
