Here are calculations on progress...

assuming each work unit [block] is 107 seconds and there are 256 units per
block of time:

number of units generated per day would be = 24*60*60 * 256 / 107 = 206.7 K.

Thus, seti@home would have to process this number per day to get near real
time. Current rate is about 25K per day.
