As the commanding officer of Starbase XII Crackers I've been keeping
quiet, but as my fellow team member
Matthew has pointed out, yes the stats are screwed. By my estimate our
team is doing approximently 1.75Mkeys/sec not the 446Kkeys/sec as shown
in our stats... My advice to all stats addicts is just to hang tough and
give it some time... it is more important to crack RC5 then to gripe
about stats...

Also, I'm missing the e-mail address <and names> of two of our team
members <I screwed up, lets just say the web page got sucked into a
wormhole and had to be recreated by memory> If you are on my team please
drop me a line and let me know so I can update the page again...
