So did Solnet. They're gaining fast. Yesterday we did .201% of the
keyspace. I think they did more. In the last 24 hours (yes, including
part of today), they've completed about .25% of the keyspace. They're
at least on pace with us. I don't think that they're outpacing us yet
- but it's close. They're at 2.4% and we should be over 3% now. We
need to keep recruiting.

Everyone, make announcements anywhere you think its appropriate to do
so. Has anyone made any announcement in say, c.o.linux.announce? I
made one in c.o.os2.announce. What about other supported platforms?
What about c.o.mac.announce? Come on, get out there and publicize
where you can.
