Crack Stuff, Help Apache

[ISN] "The Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithms project has made a generous proposal to the Apache Software Foundation: They are looking for help in solving part of Certicom's ECC Challenge. If they win, they will give donate $8000 of the $10000 prize to the ASF, with the remaining $2000 being divided between the 2 volunteers who find the match (so it's $1000 each). It's a cool challenge, a piece of cake to participate and it helps out your favorite server."
