I doubt the solution exists

Since I am the one who spent 7500+ computer hours searching for the
perfect cuboid, and looking carefully at the behavior of the face
pentacycles, I rather doubt a perfect cuboid exists, however anyone is
welcome to search to 2^64, provided their computer network is fast
enough. (it might take more computers than are in existance to do this
reasonably since the search was order O n log n thus making the search
10E11 times longer) Do you want to wait 150 billion years?


P.S. Perhaps this is a good reason why such problems should be tackled
with a quantum computer if brute force searches are made.
