Re: Voynich at Home
I'm brand new to the list, and therefore I thought it would be appropriate
me to throw in an ill-informed and un-asked-for opinion. :)

Ignoring for the moment the fact that at least 20 people would actually
participate, I think it's unlikely to be fruitful, since generally these
distributed computing systems (SETI at Home, distributed.net) always have a
known brute-force approach to cracking their particular nut.
I think we need more (human-generated) "Aha!" type experiences, followed by
modest computation, rather than a massive brute force approach. My Ahas,
incidentally, usually occur in the shower. How about Voynich-in-shower?
