Nice site :)

It's really cool. It says I have 176 hosts. Must be all the model hopping I do.

I wish I could be an all-star cruncher, too. :)

...a nice stats page anyway - and a nearly empty message board! Time to start some old discussions from scratch... ;)

Looks great, but how can Nez have that kink of RAC with only 4 hosts?

Yeah, there is definitely something funny going on there:

Recent average credit 112,188.52
Hosts 4 (List all)


And then clicking on the "List all" option:

1 GenuineIntel Microsoft Windows XP 2 1,200.24 d48d76c57e0104ad542c48c5df197aee 195,124.76
2 GenuineIntel Microsoft Windows XP 2 - ade6d64891174d647b526cf1baf5f09a 3,133.36


So, only two machines are listed, with two CPUs each, only one of the machines has any RAC listed, and it only has about 1,200 RAC, so where does the other 112,186 RAC come from?

Inquiring minds want to know....

NEZ has been investigated before and is legit. The number of hosts displayed on the stats site is incorrect.

NEZ is a server farm...NEZ has posted once and only once so far...to the SETI forums and that was when NEZ's wife was nominated BOTD. NEZ seems to curnch away happily in ambiguity and as NEZ has been pulling some huge numbers for a very very long time is really above the scrutiny that seems to propagate on the boards from time to time. Personally if I had NEZ's numbers I'd crunch in peace too and let the void of knowledge render fame and wonderment like it seems to do from time to time. Like someone stated earlier NEZ is LEGIT it's the host stats that are wrong...

Thanks very much. Perhaps one day we may know more.

Every once in a while people get curious about Nez...

Here's one thread discussing him........

Strange though, that Matt posted in that thread and talked about other stuff, but didn't mention anything about Nez....

In this same thread take a look at this post comparing Nez with Bruce Allen...gives you an idea of how many pc's Nez may have.

You're welcome...and no I meant ambiguity as in "uncertainty or inexactness of meaning" for people on the boards...since NEZ is not anonymous, but rather only hides his/her/it's (take your pick) hosts.

NEZ used to have his host visible. I've seen the vast hoard, and am humbled.

I have no doubt it's both impressive and humbling to behold...

Ooo! Here's a thought. NEZ has deciphered the forbidden Beowulf code! He's figured out how to make a small number of machines do a wicked amount of cluster crunching! *That's* how he crunches 5% of the work!

Nah, NEZ is the test bed for the SSSE3 (SSE4) vaporware software from someone... ;-)
