staff blogs

distributed.net staff keep (relatively) up-to-date logs of their activities in .plan files. These were traditionally available via finger, but we've put them on the web for easier consumption.

It has been a while since I have posted any updates to my blog here. I’ve even had a few notes asking if we’re still working on our projects. I can assure you that we are.

We’re going full speed ahead on OGR. My favourite web page at the moment is http://stats.distributed.net/project/ogr_status.php?project_id=27 , which shows in detail how many stubs we have left to process until OGR-27 is complete.

At the same time, we’re still working on RC5-72; where we have nearly completed 3% of the total work space.  We released new client software over the summer which works around the incompatibility we had with AMD 7xxx series graphics cards. The keyrate history graphs for RC5-72 and OGR (http://stats.distributed.net/keyrate.php?project_id=27 and http://stats.distributed.net/keyrate.php?project_id=8) are back online after a hardware failure.

I hope to have some more updates for you very soon. :)

Moo!
