Apologies for this earlier question - I've found the cumulative stats now,
and I've got a different question.

I finally got the Mac v2 client to claim to report some blocks - I ensured
that my internet connection was up when the client was ready to send a
block; not trivial to arrange.  I then checked my stats more than 12 hours
later to ensure that they had, in fact, been reported correctly.

I had previously checked and reported 6 blocks with the v1 client, and this
showed up in the stats.

When I checked the stats this morning, the extra 8 blocks hadn't shown up.
The stats page showed (exactly as it had *before* attempting to report
these 8 blocks):

Stats run: Tue Jul 22 04:47:43 1997 GMT
                                               Time         last heard
Position          email             Blocks  running (days)  from (days)
5150      rebecca at astrid.u-net.com     6        19.1           13.3

I confirmed that I'd entered my email address into the client correctly.

What I'm concerned about is not my stats as such - I'm not at all bothered
by my ranking and all that.  I'm worried that the Mac client's not
reporting correctly.

Can anyone shed any light?  I've appended the relevant section of the log
file to the end of this message, followed by my Prefs file.  FWIW, the
buff-out file has vanished.

Thanks in advance,

Here's the relevant section of the log file:
