I'm working from memory here, as www.distributed.net seems to be down..
so I might be wrong, but, I think that we are working on 0x66 0x67 0x68 and
0x66 is an almost completed 'standard' (i.e. server assigned opposed to
generated) subspace. 0x67 and 0x69 are pretty empty random subspaces, and
0x68 is
the current subspace (although I think blocks from 0x66 are being reassigned
'til it
is 100% complete)..
