Topcluster listing

Hi everybody,

Yes, I set up the prototype in February and announced it on beowulf and
tfcc. I have also filled the DB mainly with information I gathered myself
from (potentially outdated) web-pages. We have 59 entries right now. 

Submissions from the web-interface are sent to me. I edit them and update
the DB. I hope I have catched up now:-)
I hesitate allowing direct update as there is a far amount of 'trash'
coming in (such as kids typing in their 'macs')

This is a prototype and things are changing rapidly at times. This is why
Markus and the other people in the TOP500 project do not have access for
updates right now. This will change once the DB structure is stabilized.

What we need right now is more active submissions ( I had less then 10
sites submitting their info themselve!) as well as feedback to the
usefullness of the collected information.

Thank you
