Excuse me for my typos and logical mistakes, but..

I didn't got it - when do the results get not registered?  Or when it

Are its results public? :)
What belongs to WRT and what does to your separate build process?

Paul, just to note, I am perfectly fine with a per-day releases. :)

Well, I may not understand your reply correctly, but why then I see only 
1 release during 2006 year at the of the page [2]:

 [DIR] 200512271000/           06-Jan-2006 04:05    -   
 [DIR] 200601061000/           06-Jan-2006 05:50    -   

when WRT summary page [3] tells us there were several successful builds in 
this year already:

 Thu Jan 5 17:29:03
 Wed Jan 4 20:51:31
 Wed Jan 4 15:00:50
 Tue Jan 3 21:38:32
 Tue Jan 3 14:38:04

Has that happend due to lack of running Winrash clients during this time?  
My Winrash stayed IDLE when I had launched it several times.
