staff blogs

distributed.net staff keep (relatively) up-to-date logs of their activities in .plan files. These were traditionally available via finger, but we've put them on the web for easier consumption.

Just a few words about how the completion numbers are generated. The
single “Percent Complete” number is actually the average of how far along
we are for pass 1 and pass 2. The current breakdown of how things are
going is:

project_id | pass1_pct | pass2_pct | tot_pct
————+———–+———–+———
24 | 85.23 | 49.70 | 67.46
25 | 81.90 | 47.60 | 64.75

Also, these numbers represent the number of stubs done. Given that some
stubs require much more work than others, the percent complete may not be
a linear representation of how much work is left to do. On the other hand,
the work returned is spread out fairly evenly across the stubspace, so it
should be close.
