There are people out there who started participating 07/15. All the blocks
they chrunched are wasted. Heck, they might not even appear in the stats as participants.

This was never a reason for me to participate. I don't care if I did 2.1m blocks or
2.4m. I just want those 2.4m to appear as "done for the project".
