They got my account setup yesterday, but for some reason I'm having a
hard time connecting via ssh (it's rejecting my password).  We've tried
both a password they sent me and an MD5 crypt I sent them. Very strange
-- I use OpenSSH routinely to connect all over the place so I'm
reasonably sure my client is OK.  Anyway, I expect it is something
trivial and that I'll get in sometime this morning.  I spent the time
yesterday that I couldn't get in profitably anyway packaging stream and
a benchmark sent to me by Thomas Guignol of the list up into make-ready
tarball/RPM's.  At the moment my list looks something like:

lmbench (ass'td)
LAM/MPI plus two benchmarks (Josip and Doug each suggested one)
EPCC OpenMP microbenchmarks (probably with PGI)
possibly some fft timings (Martin Seigert)

in roughly that order, depending on how much time I get and how well
things go.  I'm going to TRY to build a page with all the tests I used
in tarball/rpm form, results, and commentary.
