Yup. The NCSA NT Supercluster is on the list at 413 with an Rmax of
62.59 and 256 CPUs. Of course if you look at NCSA's page on the cluster
(http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/SCD/Hardware/NTCluster/TechSummary) it now has
only 192 CPUs, which drops it off the bottom of TOP500. I wonder what
happened to the other 128 CPUs?
Meanwhile, NCSA is hosting a conference on the "Linux Revolution" in HPC
