Solnet not getting faster.

FYI - Solnet is not faster today than they were yesterday or Friday.
Actually, they've fallen off in the last 24 hours. Interesting. I bet
we're considerably faster. Here's a theory about this:

It's already Monday morning there, and in many of the countries
participating with Solnet. They have their weekend peak before us and
their Monday falloff before us. So they look like they're really
gaining for a while and then we stretch our lead back out.

Based on their current keyrate and our average keyrate yesterday, we're
~7% faster than they are. Of course, they've already peaked for the
weekend and should fall off the next day or two.

Also, another advantage we have in the US is that we tend to have
cheaper dialup connections, so we probably have more independents like
myself running deschall than they have.
