Damn, you're right, sorry for being dense. I wonder why they talk about
variance both before equation 3 and equation 5 and then don't bother to do the
final division that calculates it? In any case, once I see whether my laptop
will boot stably, I'll put in the division by (i  1) that turns S into the
variance and see how it goes.
