distributed computing for hashcat (cpu)
Was wondering if there were any plans or discussions to offer distributed computing for cpu hashcat?

Not that I'm a programmer by any stretch of the imagination but can see this being a good alternative than rewriting Plus to support >15 character passwords and still have somewhat ok speed -- depending on your number of cpus of course.

I know there are other tools out there that can do this already but thought it would be a great addition to cpu hashcat. Personally I find hashcat far easier to use and understand.
You can use vcl as the officially supported option, or if you are up to coding a bit, you can grab disthc off of sourceforge and tweak it for hashcat instead of oclhashcat.
vcl would only work if atom wrote cpu kernels in opencl.
disthc available http://sourceforge.net/projects/disthc/ is likely the best option to start with for this project unless atom adds network support to all the tools.
