I was looking around the SAH website. At, you have country stats, User stats, etc. I was wondering why their was no "total computing power" stats.

In other words, floating point operations per second on the Y axis and time on the X axis (in years)

There would be three lines. One is the total work done by all users. The other would be work done minus the "repeated" units. (ex: if you send out a unit 3 times to avoid hackers, you would only count it once since you only need one result, the others are just backup) The last one would be the speed of the worlds fastest single supercomputer at that time.

Since SAH is the worlds largest supercomputer it would be nice to see how fast it runs.
