Time will give me reason because with the increase of the number of servers the idle ones will also increase, that happened with the CRUS servers, duh!
Sob only has one server, RieselSieve only one server, RS Base 5 two, PSP one...
Okay. I wasn't as much thinking of hassles on the part of you or any of the other individual LLRnet server administrators, but instead more along the lines of the work I need to do to turn the LLRnet results files into contiguous lresults-format files. I could do it, but I was thinking it would be a little easier if we kept the two ranges on separate servers.

And yes, I have been keeping in mind our project's current resources--once your servers have been dried and shut down, NPLB shouldn't have any more than 3 servers at any given time. Thus, we shouldn't have the problem of idle servers, as long as we don't go over ~3 servers.
