We re-opened the 32-x part of the 3rd stub space of OGR-28 - the last one. All of the stubs for OGR-28 that need calculating have now been issued twice! Do not adjust your set.. dnetc will continue to work normally. Our progress: 82.7% of OGR-28 stubs have been calculated once. 34.3% of stubs have been verified. Moo!

Revision as of 17:20, 19 February 2020

The Organization

distributed.net was the Internet's first general-purpose distributed computing project.

Founded in 1997, our network has grown to include thousands of volunteers around the world donating the power of their home computers, cell phones and tablets to academic research and public-interest projects. Join us today in this ground-breaking cloud computing experience! We need your help...

Moo!

It's very simple to participate in our projects. You only need to download a small program, which will talk to our network and begin to process work immediately. The program uses only the computer's idle time, so when you want to use your computer, it will automatically get out of your way. Plus, there's that cute little cow icon...

There's more information on setting up the client, and about what our mission statement is.
