    Strange Stats

    Came across this in the Free-DC SoB Stats this morning, 15 users, all from Team Ukraine, and all posting very similar numbers. Maybe a quick check is in order.

    I think it is better to get it from the *official* stats when making a report like that

    All pointing to a single SBQueue perhaps then dumping it ? One test is about 1.3T or so I think, so perhaps dumping 3 tests each?

    Speaking of strange stats:

    I just checked the secret stats, and max n for First Pass is listed up around 286 million.

    Maybe in a decade or two we'll be able to cope with n's that high, but right now, I think it's a mistake.

    Probably someone who forgot to set the base value for the data to decimal when playing with the registry (Windows).
    For example min n in the drop test queue right now is 11651369 and 0x11651369h = 291 836 777 Dec and 286 667 416Dec = 0x11163298h.

    Which sort of confuses me - theoretically, that test wouldn't have ever been in a queue - so if the server never handed it out, how could someone drop it?
