Please see the my plan update for some of the details regarding these
larger stubs that were sent out.


I've added a new FAQ entry and included the details from my plan and some
additional information that some users have personally asked me to clarify
at http://n0cgi.distributed.net/faq/index.cgi?file=231

On an artbirary single day, these were the ranges of nodecounts that were
encountered:  largest 137,484,096,855;  smallest 890,421;  median

The 3D distribution plots available at
http://www.distributed.net/statistics/ogr/ shows the variability of node
counts for any given stub.  The horizontal axes represent the first two
numbers in the stubs that are distributed, that is the "x" and "y" in
"25/x-y-?-?-?"; while the height of the plot represent the number of nodes
within the completed stub.

I've added this information to

Unfortunately, it is difficult to provide automated mechanisms for
computing the project percentages at this time, so the only completion
percentages that we can offer are those that will be occasionally posted
via plan file updates.  See the following link for more information:
