Why does the combined credit for "names" stop at 4,294,967,295? There are four stopped at that number? Just wondering.

I don't know where you see this but 2^32 = 4294967296
so 4,294,967,295 is the max unsigned integer number (0xFFFFFFFF) that can fit in 32 bits (4 bytes)

As that list is maintained by Boincsynergy perhap it might be better to post here:
