Hey, Greg! Quit being an idiot! :-(
Nobody seems to have caught my mistake even after all this time...
the actual calculation should have been 3000/2^36, not 3000/2^28.
That is, the number of blocks completed divided by the total number of
blocks, which is not 2^36 instead of 2^28 as it was during RC5-56.
