(I'm currently deleting 90% of the traffic on this list due to crap.)

This is an interesting exercize to see how people hold up in the
long haul. The major failing of unsuccessful people (the 97%) is 
that they lose sight of the end goal and quit before they hit the 
finishing line. 

Anybody who wants to bail for this or that excuse, fine. Thanks for
the CPU cycles donated to date! Let's just keep recruiting processors 
and keep the total speed going up day by day. 

I, for one, am going to make sure that my two machines stay up 24h 
a day. When a fixed HTTP tunnelling proxy comes out (version 3) then 
I'll be able to bring a bunch more to bear.

IMHO the fact that the sponsors aren't accepting the assistance of
additional experienced and willing programmers is just an annoyance.
I hope that they'll reconsider, but it's not worth griping about.
