Sorry, maybe I'm just a grumpy guy, but it's bothering me that half of the mails under "do not forget about the cheaters" is offtopic about some mac client.

Please use another subject, or reply on topic.

Thanx a million :)

    Not to mention the 2 GigaHertz ones ;-)

    A 1.8 GHz PowerPC 970 (aka G5) trounces 13MKeys/s

    and dont forget that there TWO processors on 2 GHz and 1.8 GHz macs

    It has always been this way, when rc5 was nicknamed 56 ;)

    too bad that ogr24 hasn't any results since it reached 100%.


    maybe client should save timestamp at completed packet. something like 12:34:56 started 12:43:65 finished and server can compare completion time for this CPU with average time for this type of CPU
