Here is a list of the top 500. Number 1 is a 8192 processor giant from IBM.

Hi, Jeremy. Thanks for this, as well as all the nice tidbits you provide. It's interesting to see where the giant computers are located, owned, and the manufactorers. Before reading this article I thought the mainframes were virtually dominated by Cray. I was surprised to see they are not on the top of the list.

By the way, I noticed by my last post that the "newbie" status is upgraded. It's a coincident that the magical post was one where I was a helper rather than a helpee, as I so often am over here.

Thanks for the system availability and resources.

Yeah the CRAY's do not have the strong hold that they used to. The highest one was #10. You are automagically upgraded from a newbie to a member after you have 30 posts. There are other titles to aspire to also. Congratulations, I believe you are the 4th one to be upgraded to member status.

BTW I would like to take this time to thank Larry as he is currently the one who provides the bandwidth that makes this site possible!
