I'm glad to say that SolNET has recovered to their earlier speed of
roughly 2000 Mkeys/sec. 8 days ago they had a client bug which forced
them to break all the clients in distribution. I'm impressed that it
only took a week for them to get everyone upgraded to the new client.

SolNET is currently operating at 2160 Mkeys/sec. We (deschall) are
operating at 4230 Mkeys/sec. A week ago, the same day that SolNET had
their blip we were at 3610Mkeys/sec. So a rough estimate of the cost
of SolNET's blip is a 17% increase in processor power.
