	I'm one of the DES refugees (btw--we finally got our T-shirt
designed), and I think the timing of the solution was just wrong
for us.  I know that I got caught in the 'going home from school
and losing my good internet connection' shuffle, and my rate
dropped quite a bit.  Wait until schools start up over the next
month and more universities come on-line.  Then we should see a
noticable jump in the keyrate.
