Look in the Team stats.  Unlike the host stats they are supposed to
work.  Really.

I hope so.

That's my understanding.  I have a feeling that the stats update only
once a day.  There was a time when they did it once an hour.  In the
SolNet DES challenge, we had updates every 30 minutes.  From what I
know, they had a PC running the master server and the web/stats stuff.
It was at 10% load.  There were less than 10K hosts then, I believe.
