Skynet's Distributed Computing Platform - Download This!

April 13, 2009

Skynet Research Distributed Computing Platform

The on-going Skynet Research viral for Terminator Salvation has been expanding every day, but so far nothing big has happened. Sure, a few weeks ago a Resist Or Be Terminated website was discovered, and they've been trying to take down everything Skynet-related since, including the security cameras. But when is Skynet going to take over the world and bring about Judgment Day? Well, a reader named "Deck Films" sent me an e-mail today with a link to a website with a download for Skynet's Distributed Computing Platform - a downloadable application that links in with every other DCP computer around the world.

"DCP is a volunteer system for grid computing that enables Skynet Research to tap into the processing power of computers around the world." It sounds kind of like SETI@home or Folding@home (for those of you who know what those are), but for Skynet, and obviously this means one day they'll be taking over all of our computers (and the world). You can download Skynet's DCP application from this link. It's located on a Warner Brothers website because I'm sure they have some crazy policies regarding actually downloading software and you have to agree to the terms of service to even get it to begin with - so don't do this at work.

Once you launch the application, it shows you two primary views, one of the entire world with little yellow dots indicating where each computer that is connected to Skynet's DCP is located. You can also click on the odd yellow/green graph in the lower left corner and it brings up another new display with more information. Also found in the lower right corner a section that says "Input Code" and a space for 9 characters. We're guessing there is some code that can be entered here, but I have no clue where to find this or what'll happen when you put it in. Any ideas? If you're into this viral, I'd suggest you download this right away!

We really have no clue what all this means or where it's going, but it's really starting to get quite interesting. An actual application that is installed on everyone's computers? This is almost getting kind of scary. I wonder if they really are planning a complete Skynet takeover just before the film's release in late May?

    I've tried everything I could think of. Even genetics which you can see in the lower left corner when you click on the [x]. No luck.

  • Impressed with the use of Adobe AIR so that it also plays on Linux as well as the usual PC/Mac platforms. Still... it doesn't seem to do much.
  • It doesn't do much yet...
  • Mark
    Actually there is now some footage that has been "sent back" from a possible future (2018) in which the (presumably) soldier tries to warn you about skynet! I assume more stuff happens the closer we get to release (to see it click the x in the red bar near the first audio anomaly)

    The word is Humanity. Each time I type it, and when I get to type down the last "y", it erases it, almost. After I erase everything else, I take my mouse and pretend to highlight left to out of the margin. The one missing "*" comes back. This hasn't happened with any other word I tried with 9 letters, or more, for a matter of fact.

    ^ Never Mind^ Just a common glitch on the program.
  • PH
    It never seems to load completly for me...Halfway or close to the end. Maybe coz im in Australia...?
  • Mark
    Well i'm in Australia too and it works fine for me! Could just be age of your computer because mine is only a couple months old!
  • PH
    My slower computer at work was ok, but i cant get it going at home...Always loads partway and then nothing...Tried disabling virusscan and firewall, no joy :(
  • PH
    Nevermind, seems to load up on the 20th try... So, are we helping it decode the genetics? I'd be interested to see if its actually doing anything by analysing my network traffic...
