************
Daily stats: http://rc5.distributed.net/stats/
************

These stats have to do with the latest GMT-day, that's midnight to
midnight greenwich time.
They are updated every morning at about 6:00 am GMT
I think that's because they're updated manually (still..)

About the timestamps:
* Executive summary/top100/etc.: timestamp 6:00 am GMT
* Search-results (search.cgi?) : timestamp "now (GMT)" 
If you want to know when the logfile ended exactly, do the following:
* Executive summary/top100/etc.: timestamp minus "last seen" = midnight
* Search-results (search.cgi?) : timestamp minus "last seen" = midnight


*************************
Cumulative "total" stats: http://rc5.distributed.net/stats/total/
*************************

These stats take account for all blocks checked in _until_ the last
run. At this time (July 30), that's once every couple days. All stats
_do_ produce correct results for the time they take account for.
They exclude the period 6/27 - 7/2, because the logsystem crashed
back then. Bovine does have the data, so your blocks will count!

About the timestamp:
* Executive summary/top100/etc.: timestamp latest update
				 (can be couple days ago)
* Search results (search.cgi?) : timestamp "now (GMT)"
				 (because they are parsed "now (GMT)")
If you want to know till what date and time these total stats are valid:
* Executive summary/top100/etc.: timestamp minus "last seen"
* Search-results (search.cgi?) : timestamp minus "last seen"
These two substractions should result in the same date/time, namely
the date/time the logfiles were parsed.


Hope this helps.
