     Let's fix that math error:
     0.5702% / 55 hours * 24 hours/day = 0.249%/day.  If this rate 
     change, we'll be at:
     22.5 days --  5.60%
     45   days -- 11.2 %
     67.5 days -- 16.8 %.
     To hit the first deadline, we need to up our average keyrate 17.9 
     times.  To hit the second deadline, 8.92 times.  To hit the third, 
     5.95 times.  (... assuming that the entire keyspace must be 
     to complete the task.  "On average" only half of this speedup is

     Not even close.  On the stats page right now (20:31 GMT, Friday 16 
     January 1997), we had completed 0.5702% of the keyspace as of 15 Jan 
     1998, 23:59 GMT.  Since the contest started at 17:00 GMT on 13 
     1997, we're averaging around 0.4%/day.  After ~25 days we'll be ~10% 
     finished.  Unless we can get some non-x86 clients going, we're going 
     to be nowhere near finished by the first cut-off.

Any word so far on estimates to exhaust the key space?  I know a few 
people have had trouble with the DES clients, and we are 
sans-MAC/RISC/etc.  I could care less about my stats (that's why I log 
stuff to a file), just if we are on track for 23 days.
