Distributed Search for Fermat Number Divisors

This distributed computing project hopes to add to the list of known Fermat number divisors. After downloading the required software, anyone willing to contribute their computer's idle time can take part in the project. Users that succeed in finding a divisor will be recognized on the site. There are further resources on this Web site than just the program. For instance, the main page offers an interesting historical account of Fermat numbers and their divisors, and the math section has graphs of results that are suitable for people with a decent understanding of the subject.
