What is

"As a "loosely knit" group of computer users from all over the world, we take up challenges and run projects which require a lot of computing power. We solve these by utilizing the combined idle processing cycles of our members' computers. That's why we are called "". Our more official name is Distributed Computing Technologies Inc. (or DCTI in short)."

The client only uses your cpu's idle cycles. So most people leave it running all the time (reccommeded for 600mhz cpu's and faster only)
