*** Current Status ***

Monday we passed 15Gkeys/second!!!

Code Freeze - We have put a code freeze into effect in preperation for
version 2.7100, so don't expect any new clients for 2-3 weeks. We are
working towards bug-free clients and making the newest code available on
all platforms. Towards that end, we will be starting a beta testing
program in the near future... see below.

The design contest is over, and our own Vetere won, due to the
lack of other interested designers. The new design will appear in the
next week as we work to implement it.

A reminder that http://rc5.distributed.net/ will soon be eliminated,
the correct URL is http://www.distributed.net/ - please make
any changes you need to on your web pages.

*** Volunteer Opportunities ***

We are still in need of some hardware donations... please see
http://www.distributed.net/donation.html#Hardware for more information.
The list includes:
    - A dual CPU motherboard
    - CPUs and memory for the motherboard
    - A video card
    - 2 32 EDO SIMMs (for a different machine)

We also need a SPARC programmer and assembly guru.

*** Coming Soon ***

A Beta program will be starting soon. This involves more then simply
running the client, you must try many configurations, and basicly
attempt to break the client to find problems. Watch the client page
for more information.
