Speaking of e-mail screw-ups, the stats display the team I'm in, Starbase
XII (bhiggins at shaw.wave.ca), the stats say that we are running at 300
keys/sec average, but I know for a fact that the other teammates, 3 of
them, the founders of the team, have the cracker running 24/7 and never
turn it off.  This is for 9 computers, all Win95, but some Pentium 133 &
120's, and a few high end 486's.  I run mine 24/7 almost all the time,
varying in speed due to other programs on the computer.  I average around
400 keys/sec.  So yes, the stats are REALLY screwed.

If that continues it's going to take ages to break this damn thing.
