===Season's Greetings (January 4, 2017)===
+
===OGR-28 update (July 29, 2020)===
All of us at distributed.net would like to wish you compliments of the season, whether you recently celebrated Christmas, Hanukkah, a Solstice or Kwanzaa! As we begin our journey around the Sun again, we give thanks for your help with our projects. We wish good health and peace for you in the year ahead.
+
We passed 75% complete on OGR-28! Thank you all :) Moo!
  
===A quick update (August 10, 2016)===
+
===Project update (July 16, 2020)===
A look at OGR-28: 42,000 participants. 900 days. 31 BILLION (I know!) Gnodes checked. 20% completed. We can still complete it by New Year if each of us gets a few friends to join in!
+
477 million (~91%) of all of the stubs in OGR-28 have been tested once, and more than 306 million have been verified! We express our thanks to the members of Formula BOINC for including Moo! Wrapper (and our RC5 project) in their Sprint series. Moo!
  
RC5-72 has been in progress for 5,000 days as I write. There is still a long way to go, with only just over 4% of the work completed. To have the help of 120,000 participants is amazing. Thank you for all of your contributions.
+
===Project update (July 9, 2020)===
 +
We are picking up the pace on RC5-72 but we still need help. Tell your friends! Moo!

The good news is.. we could find the key tomorrow! Moo!

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.
