Not the first time; won't be the last time I've had a senior moment.

With regards to the report being out of sync with Primenet, that will (almost) *always* be the case. GPU72 only "spiders" Primenet twice an hour to get updates wrt factors found and P-1'ing/TF'ing completed.
When the report says "Updated: xxxx UTC", I expect all the results reported to primenet by xxxx UTC to be there. If that is not the case can you please give a "Data as of" time as well which represents the last time primenet was spidered?

I don't really care what time report was generated. I only care how recent the data actually is.

I hear your reasoning for the change request. Having thought about it, I'm going to remain with the current code paths.

There are many clients (read: workers) who interact with GPU72 by way of direct IPC. The Colab TF'ers and P-1'ers for example.

The timestamp on the report at https://www.gpu72.com/twok/ should perhaps be interpreted as the knowledge GPU72 had at that moment in time. One hour resolution is the same as provided by Primenet for many of its reports.

I hope and trust this is acceptable, taking into consideration the computational and bandwidth constraints of the IPC between these two systems.
