Namecoin pool report: blocks 200378-201097

To answer the question "Why is namecoin hash rate only half of bitcoin?", I thought I'd share some statistics.
Major (>5%) pools over the last 720 blocks (95% confidence intervals):
Discus Fish: 44.00% +/- 3.58% GHash.io: 31.10% +/- 3.28% BTCGuild: 8.75% +/- 1.86% Eligius: 7.22% +/- 1.69% 
I am able to attribute all but one of the blocks over that 720 block sample period to other known pools.
Other observed pools:
From https://blockchain.info/pools miners that don't mine Namecoin accounts for about 36% of Bitcoin's hash rate.
So, Namecoin's hash rate can be expected to be around 64% of Bitcoin's. I am not sure where backprop came up with that "half" figure, but I think this clearly explains most, if not all, of the difference.

Reviews of six mining pools

Hi all,
I got four antminer s1's in September (after buying leased mining since December 13) and after hacking them to each concurrently mine on up to nine pools, I began working my way through the various pools I found on blocktrail. When I started mining, I was daunted by bitcointalk, and couldn't really find any reviews anywhere else, so hopefully it'll let some newer miners check out the options before they start, or if people are thinking of pointing some of their hashing elsewhere, to let them see what's out there.
I've published six out of the eight in this first round, but am looking for ideas for the next eight after this, looking at them through a similar lens.
