A very small tweak of the Overview stats
On the Overview page the following numbers are showing up in e notation
Daily Lines Sieved 1.16111e+06 Relations Collected Daily 2.8646e+06 The e notation is longer than the actual numbers and appears to be less accurate the first is 116111? and the second is 28646?? if 8 digits were used then it will accommodate when the project gets 10 million plus a day !

its e+06, not e+05, so ya've to move the . (dot) 6 places to the right, so the numbers aren't 116111 but 1161110 and 286460, not 28646.
i guess when numbers will be at 8 digits, the coders will use the e+08 for replace the e+06 :) But it's true it would be more precise if the e+08 would be used :)

What was posted, 1.16111e+06 and 2.8646e+06, is from the Overview page.
The 28646?? uses ? to represent an unknown value 2,864,6?? where the last two digits are unknown. 2.8646e+06, as shown on the page, is 2 million 864 thousand 6 hundred with the tens and ones digits not displayed. My point is to not display e notation but regular integers, many programming languages have a convention of displaying a number in e notation once it is greater than a certain number of digits, what I asked was for these two values to be set to 8 digits thus stopping 7 and 8 digit numbers from being displayed in e notation as it is with other numbers on the page, example the total of Relations Collected Daily.

ya that's true, that would be great see all the integers without the e notation (until we process numbers smaller then 8 digits)
