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.

Hi All,

Some of you may have received an email from stats indicating your password was
retrieved by googlebot:

you (or “crawl-66-249-68-177.googlebot.com” [66.249.68.177]) recently
requested the password for your distributed.net stats account.

This was a side effect of the temporary placeholder page put in place whilst
fritz (statsbox) was offline. Your password has not been disclosed to anyone
but you.

For now, I’ve blocked googlebot from accessing stats, until our robots.txt file
takes effect again.
