My Unix account was showing yesterday 10 units sent and 5 received. I had
the unix version running before the mac/windows versions came out, and my
"units received" score was reset to 0 when the mac/windows versions were
released, like they reset the records or something. It was very odd. In
this case, there is only one machine running on that account. My other
account has two computers on it, and the difference between sent and
received appears to be 3. Also very odd.
