That sucks ;) the distributed.net coders
should just makes the central computer give
out completely new keys until all keys are
given out. Then the oldest block requested but
not processed is given out. Isn't that a more
efficient idea for machines that are
disk-only? ;)

Regards,
James "Binary" Colton
