In about two weeks, the number of completed work units should pass its halfway point.

*Symbolic*with its 128 bit signatures has completed 69 work units (6,900,000 positions) in the 400-799 work unit range which was done by Ankan and his 64 bit signature program. All but about one in a half million results were confirmed with the mismatched results were all decided by TalkChess posters in

*Symoblic's*favor.

As I understand it, Peter's program uses 64 bit signatures for the positions and a different set of 64 bit signatures for transposition table addressing. Will there be a match of his result and

*Symbolic's*? If so, then we can all believe in the answer. Regardless,

*Symbolic*will also produce proofs by giving the 20 ply one subtotals and the 400 ply two subtotals. Oh, and the 96,400,064 ply seven subtotals and multiplier factors.

Ah, that's

----

Of the 69 work units in the 400-799 range completed, only eight have had mismatches. Which is pretty good.

----

On average, it takes about eleven days to process a work unit. The observed range is from under two days to just over 100 days depending on work unit difficulty and the machine in use.

----

On average, there are about 650,000 completed positions in 13 uncompleted work units being processed.
