We were at roughly 6.5 billion keys/sec, so

<number of keys I did>
Time I saved DESCHALL = ---------------------- seconds

So saved the most time, a little over 2 days.

My wife's school, at about 34th place, saved about 4 hours.

And my two lil' 486's, ran almost full time since march saved about 2 mins.

It true that no one institution saved an incredible amount of time,
but together we stomped it!
