Hello Erich, (and colleagues)

Great job. I agree with your concerns. I think, some of our TFCC volunteers
will be able to help you out in verifying validity of submissions.

The web page (http://www.TopClusters.org) has been updated as per
comments and suggestions from Prof. Dongarra. It appears like we are really 
heading towards making all happen.

----------- The main update made to the site is --------------
BENCHMARKS 

We are starting to collect and rank the clusters on the bases of the LINPACK performance results and
will later include benchmarks for communication and I/O. 

Linpack HPC benchmark url: http://www.netlib.org/benchmark/hpl/ 
-----------

I am sure many members of the list either have their own clusters (mostly built by
themselves) or have access to them. It will be great to see all of them actively 
making submissions of their clusters to the list. Also, inform about TopClusters.org
to their friends and colleagues.

Regards
Raj
