First off, I would like to apologize for the confusion in regards to when the statistics server would be updated. We understand that a huge number of users find this to be the best distributed.net feature and thus we give it a high priority on our list.
However, throughout the DES-TEST-1 contest, as described in my plan (http://www.distributed.net/cgi-bin/dnet-finger.cgi?user=dbaker), we encountered a series of problems on our master keyserver. The master keyserver is the machine that all the proxies/keyservers send and receive blocks from. Since our first priority was to find the DES key, RC5 was put on hold throughout the test. Because of this, we have a huge back-load of blocks to process. This doesn't mean that your blocks are lost; we have them, so don't worry!
Nugget and I will be working today, tonight, and possibly tomorrow on processing the stats backlog and then processing the master keyserver backlog to get your stats back up to date.
Thanks for your concern,
The RC5 random drawing for prizes will be delayed until the first day they get the stats back online and then every week there after until I run out of stuff to give away. If the stat server goes down again, that weeks drawing will be delayed until they have it back up.
