I talked with Nugget last night on IRC after he brought the stats back on
line. Here is the scoop:
For stats, all blocks submitted, are normalized to 2^28. Thus if you
use the default setting of 2^30 on your client then the stats will report
more blocks then you actually sent it. It is most likely calculated by
(NumBlocksReceived * BlockSize)/2^28
Where NumBlocksReceived is the actual number of blocks you submitted,
BlockSize it the size of those blocks (default is 2^30).
That way stats take in to account the different block sizes.
The Stats block size is 2^28
Personally, I would like to thank /\/ugget for a job well done.
