===OGR-28 update (May 14, 2020)===
Stats are caught up again. We're still trying to figure out the cause of a timestamping error that periodically happens on our new server, which causes automatic stats importing to break. Whenever it happens, a lot of manual fixups have to be done on our backend to get stats processing to recover. Thanks for your continued support! ]:8)

The stats system (standard) is suffering from a heatsink failure. Bovine is investigating a solution. Update to follow.
 
 
 
===Keymaster outage (November 19, 2016)===
 
There was a brief unplanned outage of the keymaster for about 8 hours earlier today, but the network is in the process of catching up right now and should be back to normal soon.
 
 
 
There will also be a planned outage of the stats server for this weekend due to building maintenance needing to service the air conditioning. Once service is restored on Monday, the stats server will again catch up.
 
 
 
We do not expect there to have been any significant loss of data or stats credit as a result of these events.
 
 
 
Thanks for your patience!
 
 
 
===New stub space (November 18, 2016)===

===IRC changes (August 24, 2016)===
 
After nearly a decade of running our own IRC network, the official distributed.net gathering place and coordinating point will be relocating to irc.freenode.net #distributed. If you're new to IRC or a long-time familiar face, please do stop by when you get a chance.
 
 
 
===A quick update (August 10, 2016)===
 
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!
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
Have you downloaded new dnetc client software lately? There are a raft of improvements in the last couple of versions, including speed-ups on some platforms (the latest came out of pre-release two months ago). Moo!
 
 
 
===New clients (August 8, 2016)===
 
Did you download the version 521 client software yet? It has been out of pre-release for two months...
 
 
 
===New stub space (July 6, 2016)===

===A quick update (February 23, 2016)===
 
We have just passed the second anniversary of the OGR-28 project. With over 36,000 contributors from around the world, we have completed more than 14% of the work necessary to prove the Optimal Golomb Ruler with 28 marks. You can track our progress on https://stats.distributed.net/, where we’ve recently restored the popular keyrate graphs, which show changes in our network’s speed over time.
 
 
 
===A quick update (December 2, 2015)===
 
We've recently started on a new OGR range (7-x) and so daily stubs completed will be higher. We're still struggling with our web site, but glad that you're here with us. Keep telling your friends. We need all the help we can get.

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.
