The status of the installation of nanco as of March 13th is as follows:
- the cluster can run MPI jobs through infiniband.
  Early tests show a parallel speedup.
- there have been compiler problems, but now the Gnu and Sun
  compilers are working with the infiniband MPI
- the queueing and accounting systems are still not ready

With the optimistic viewpoint that these problems will be overcome,
we have prepared a  webpage:

http://phycomp.technion.ac.il/~nanco

which has  links to information on application forms
and a draft of an announcement about the upcoming workshop to
celebrate the cluster opening.
