(Answer) (Category) distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : (Category) How to participate : (Answer) Does my machine need to be connected to the net all the time?

Absolutely not! The clients have the ability to fetch work to be completed at a later time when your computer is offline for example. If all this work is completed before the computer reconnects to the Internet then the client will continue working until the network is available. This allows any machine, even one that is only online once every couple of days or so, to work continuously.
