[RC5] Stats are up (READ THIS FIRST)

     Would it be too much trouble to move the two-hour blackout to occur 
     about 18:00 or 19:00 Pacific Time (about -8:00) which would be about 
     three hours later than you specified?  This would make most of the 
     "downtime" be during "odd hours" for people who don't live on islands 
     in the Pacific Ocean.  (Who, I am sure, would be welcome to join RC5, 
     but I suspect would be not terribly inconvenienced by checking stats 
     in the morning...)

Stats are now back up.  *sound of massive rush to rc5stats.distributed.net*
I interviewed Nugget and obtained the following information, and am 
posting it here to answer the obvious questions.
Stats will run daily, and will take about 2 hours to run.  Presently, 
it is planned to have them run at midnight GMT, which is not so 
convenient for New Worlder's, but that's life.  Stats will be 
inaccessible while they are updating.  And no, stats will not be going 
back to hourly updates, even though the new code is much more 
efficient.  Nugget says much of that efficiency was gained by being 
able to make the assumption that stats would run daily, so going
back to hourly would once again kill the server.
