    I used mc68k's dual processor installer, but now there is this dnetc program running. What is dnetc? Why is it taking up my processor? Can I quit it and still fold? If someone would answer these questions I would really appreciate it.

    Re: dnetc?

    dnetc is the distributed.net client. checkout http://distributed.net

    when i look around for cpu clock eater program, i found seti. but i don't think that seti is anything useful.

    then there's distributed.net. it was famous for cracking rc5 encryption. right now, it's trying to crack 72-bit rc5. also it solves ogr, which i cannot explain.

    what's more is the person who cracked the key wil get a nice prize, about couple of grand.

    there's also a mac evangelist team which has gained respected position. thanks to powerpc of course.

    if you didn't know about dnetc, then probably someone is using your computer trying to make some money. just kill it, run it again with your own id! use ./dnetc -configure
    i do that. i run it on 2 g4, 2 g3, 1 p4, 1 athlon xp, 1 xmeta.
