How much computing power would it take to crack an 1024bit key in a
reasonable amount of time?
I thought it would be many years before it could be done, for it to be
of any use to anyone?
I have not seen nor heard any info that it has been done as yet...
Luck is my game ;-)
Linux is my aim :)

While it is true it is possible to break an 1024bit key, it is also
difficult. While I am not saying that going to an higher bit key is a
bad idea it is also proabably not really necessary. Also ssh is based
on ssl so what effects one (as far as keys) effects the other.
