Just wanted to make everyone aware that DIMES is an NCI project, meaning non CPU intensive. This means it can be run alongside other projects, whether that's F@H, one of the many projects using BOINC, or others, without affecting production. The aim of DIMES is to "study the structure and topology of the Internet" via pings and traceroutes. This means it requires a constant net connection to do any work, but it should barely use any bandwidth. It also requires the corresponding version of Java to be installed (32 bit for the 32 bit client, 64 bit for the 64 bit client). Gilthanis wrote an excellent guide on getting DIMES set up, which can be found here - http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1768712 I would urge anybody not currently running DIMES to get it set up, as it's quick and easy, won't affect your other production, and it helps our team's ranking!
