Het lijkt erop dat de Phantom Flusher toch geen trojan is. Als dit verhaaltje op het AnandTech forum waar is, is een Nederlander verantwoordelijk voor de grote hoeveelheid blokjes die AnandTech recentelijk behaalt bij RC5. Ik ben hier niet echt blij mee, want aangezien het dus geen trojan is, kan AT doorgaan op deze manier. Zo zullen de DPC niet zo vaak meer op de eerste plaats komen:
For a while now I have been suspecting someone quite near to me of being The Phantom Flusher y'all are so worried about. If I'm right about him being our guy, there's no need to worry, because he's just being funny in his own weird perfectionist sysadmaniacal way and it's no trojan.
It started exactly 2 days (!) after me pointing him to all this RC5 stuff, me pointing him to THIS forum *and* asking him to check it out and join the Dutch Power Cows. In fact, I mailed him 2 URLs, that of dpc.tweakers.net and that of this here forum. He was not aware of dnet's existence until that day. So: A coincidence? I think not, especially since your calculations in the long thread about PhF are about right for the amount of power I know he can get his hands on. He replied very enthusiastically about both URLs, by the way.
I then asked him if he'd joined DPC, like I told him to, and he said:
"No I don't like that, I'm more of a loner so I decided to have some fun with them." I asked him what the hell he meant by that, and he just smiled to me and said: "If I told you, it would spoil all the fun." (all in dutch of course) and he refused to give me any more info.
Ever since I knew he's been flushing I had also been looking for his name at distributed.net, but it still isn't there! I think I know all online names he uses, so I asked myself where all those blocks would go.. See what I mean?
