This is a byproduct of my usage of the historical RC5-56 stats database
when generating the ID numbers which weren't a component of stats until
RC5-64.  ID numbers have been assigned sequentially based on that
email address's start date.  Because of this, many low ID numbers 
actually show no work at all because the RC5-56 data is not online.

On a related note, I just recently (last week, in fact) recovered the
RC5-56 databases from my former employer, hfdirect.com, and we should
be able to bring RC5-56 stats online after the migration to the new
stats server.  Should be interesting, from a historical perspective.
