For those who are curious about "anonymous2.anonymous":

The coordinator of the site has asked that their identity remain
confidential. However, the coordinator has offered up the attached
(very detailed) statistics, and given permission to post them.

I said, in part "It's amazing that a mere 40 computers can land
you in 3rd place!"

The coordinator responded, in part: "As you can see, we're an Intel
shop and your code is blazing on a P5."
