Sorry, I've got to go on topic for a sec  :)

It's my understanding that the new DES clients will be released somewhere 
around the 7th. On the day the contest starts the proxies will begin 
handing out DES blocks instead of RSA. So if the day before the contest 
starts your personal proxy downloads 10000 blocks or your clients have a 
full buff-in of 1000 this contest won't get the good start needed to crunch 
this within <23 days.

In preparation of DES I'm keeping a careful eye on my machines buffers so 
that I can do a full fetch the day DES starts.
