or... The devs started producing WUs and just didn't bother to tell the admin who didn't notice and turn on the servers until the 14th...

No the the servers were issuing work from around 1700 UTC on 14th which was 4am on 14th even in the thirteenth time zone .... unless maybe to be prudent thay allowed a four hour safety margin?

This is the real superstition: The natural reluctance of programmers to say in advance when a new set of work will be available in case it isn't.

There is a sea story about the Friday the 13th ...

To disprove that it was bad luck, this group commissioned a ship to be built on Friday the 13th, laid the keel on a Friday the 13th, launched it on a Friday the 13th, put it into service on Friday the 13th, it sailed on a Firday the 13th ...

Neveer heard from again ...
