I have a vague memory of somebody designing a cryptographic system or
puzzle that was supposed to be resistant to distributed cracking. The
system was supposed to be intrinsically non-parallelizable. You could
throw a bigger CPU at the problem, but more CPUs wouldn't help.
Does this ring any bells?
