    Nice... Im number 5 on the chart overall. Does that stat page get updated regularly? In other words can i bookmark it to keep track of how we are doing so i dont have to log in all the time?

    I'm thinking so - look at the top left-hand corner and it was updated just today. I can't be sure that it'll be around forever though.

    Did anyone take a look at the stats page recently? Im pretty sure its messed up since it thinks i submitted 25,524,611 points in one day and now account for 415.48% of the total. Does everyone else see this or did something just go screwy when i hit the page? Lemme know cuz this is weird.

    Yeah - it's messed up - but if you scroll down you'll see that there's an adjustment going on for that extra 25.5 mil you just turned it today :) If it goes through you should see it subtracted tomorrow.

    This does not have much to do with distributed computing, does it ? :p

    I just started on this project 2 days ago, and so far have generated about 680 points, but my stats aren't updating on the team page, or anywhere else for that matter - any ideas?

    On another note - I've found the following for caching work units (via the grid.org forums) Has anybody come accross this? http://udmon.sourceforge.net/

    and a page full of third party apps... http://forum.grid.org/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=8790

    I was unable to enter any team's page, probably those have been removed now that the project was complete. I did take this screenshot though (see attachment - TechSpot Team ranked #451 all time).

    I haven't yet figured out...what exactly is this? Is it just that you're donating your computer for research on all this stuff?

    It is a distributed computing project. There are many like this. One of the oldest is SETI. Techspot used to have a distributed computing forum, but it was seldom used.

    Distributed computing means donating unused clock cycles on your computer to process information that is then sent to a central data bank. By and large these these programs are scientific in nature. With DC you can achieve greater computational power than 1 giant mainframe.

    Millions of small computers can process greater info than 1 or two giant computers.
