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.

Quick update – 20 January 2016

Filed under: project status @ 22:34 UTC

Dear friends,

This week we celebrated the birthday of our project leader Bovine… and 700 days of searching for the optimal Golomb Ruler with 28 marks! With your help, we have completed 13.61% of the entire work space, and the first 7 hills. (See my earlier blog posts!)

We also learned today that our friends at the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (mersenne.org) have discovered the largest prime number known to mankind to date!

Keep telling your friends :) Moo!
