Since Biobrew is loosely based on Rocks and we benefit from their work, I thought it might be a polite gesture to send the following 
message to this list for those who don't subscribe to the Rocks mailing list.

Rocks Folks,

It's the time of year (again) where we justify our existence to NSF (our primary
funding vehicle). While we have several measurements of Rocks usage (downloads,
number of list subscribers, number of posts), the registry gives our funding agency an
additional and significant device for evaluation.  It also lets us know which platforms are the
most important to Rocks users and what sizes of clusters our software must support.

Please take the time to register your cluster if you haven't already and update your
current registration if your current configuration has changed.  As in the past, we don't
add folks who register to any a new email list. You won't get any more mail from us than
you do now: :-).

The registry site is http://www.rocksclusters.org/rocks-register.
Currently there are 175 registered clusters  ranging in size from 2 to 301 nodes.

Many thanks,
Phil and the Entire Rocks Team
