Mailing Lists

There are several mailing lists available to provide you with more information about the distibuted.net and its projects. You can subscribe to our mailing lists by visiting the mailman subscription page entering your e-mail address into the correct form.

Announcement Lists

  • The announcements list (announce@lists.distributed.net) is a moderated mailing list that will only contain messages from the distributed.net administrators. Posts are sent in English. To subscribe to the main list, send a message with the subject "subscribe" to announce-request@lists.distributed.net. Alternatively, you may also visit the mailman listinfo page for the "announce" list. Please Subscribe to this list, important information is sent on this list.
  • The .plan list is a mailing list used to mail out the day's .plan updates at 00:00 UTC. To subscribe to the main list, send a message with the subject "subscribe" to plans-request@lists.distributed.net. Alternatively, you may also visit the mailman listinfo page for the "plans" list.

Project RC5 Lists

  • If you have questions you wish to direct privately to the administrators, you can send mail to help@distributed.net or use the help form.
  • The main list (rc5@lists.distributed.net) is an unmoderated mailing list available for your questions and discussions relating to the effort. To subscribe to the main list, send a message with the subject "subscribe" to rc5-request@lists.distributed.net. Alternatively, you may also visit the mailman listinfo page for the "rc5" list.
  • The main list gets a considerable amount of traffic and so a "digest" version of it is also available so as to reduce the number of mail messages you receive in your box. To subscribe to the digested version of the main list, visit the mailman listinfo page and subscribe with that option selected.
  • If you have questions about the personal proxies, you should direct your messages to the mailing list. To subscribe to the proxyper@lists.distributed.net main list, send a message with the subject "subscribe" to proxyper@lists.distributed.net. Alternatively, you may also visit the mailman listinfo page for the "proxyper" list.

Regional Lists

We also offer a number of regional mailing lists to allow our participants to obtain assistance and have discussions in their native languages.

IRC Online Discussion

IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a way of communicating in real time with people all over the world. IRC is similar to instant-messaging tools such as ICQ or MSN Messenger except that it is focused on group conversations instead of person-to-person messaging. distributed.net owes its existence to IRC and IRC is likely to always be the most effective way of getting help using dnetc if the FAQ doesn't have the answer to your question.

The channel #distributed on irc.distributed.net normally has quite a few people in it and ranges in activity from hectic to very quiet. You will be able to chat with whoever is in the channel at the time. Although it's the official distributed.net channel the discussion can frequently stray to other topics.

The regular users of the #distributed channel have also set up some webpages showing:

Slogans

A slogans database has been set up to allow participants to contribute their favorite one-liner promotions of distributed.net or distributed computing. Meanwhile, other people can vote on your submissions to rank your contributed slogans relative to those already entered.
