Let me explain;Who Are They?
Gomez is an Internet Performance Management Company and has been around since 1997.What Do They Do?
There website says "Gómez Performance Management services ensure consistent, fast and reliable delivery of Web applications across the global Internet. We monitor 24 x 7, capturing, analyzing and delivering Internet performance data in real-time with unrivalled clarity, detail, accuracy and flexibility."
The Gomez Peer Network is said to be the worlds:
· First real-time network
· First node-based infrastructure with replication services (for enhanced reliability)
· First Internet performance measurement environment with adaptive alerts
· First end-to-end synthetic performance network integrated with "last-mile" measurement capability
One of the tests they do on their client's websites is called The Last Mile. The factors tested for the Last Mile Report are;
· Back-end infrastructure and hosting relationships;
· Third-party content and transactions;
· Backbone conditions;
· ISP outages and congestion;
· Geographic variables; and
· Internet connection types.
This is classed as one of the most important service's they offer as its from the customers prospective - it shows an over all picture to a company how there website performs from any part of the world in different conditions connecting at different speeds. The way this is tested is by using all the people like me who have signed up as a Gomez Peers. So you can see we are pretty important to the service they offer.
There are four easy steps:Step 1
Download the Gómez PEER software.
To install the Gómez PEER, ensure you meet the system requirements
· Windows 95, 98, ME, XP, NT or 2000
· Pentium II or better CPU
· 32 MB RAM 30 MB Drive Space, including the Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
The Download is 2.7MB in size for UK residents
· NOTE: If you are running Windows 95, make sure you have the latest version of Windows Socket. You can download the latest WinSocks from there website.
When Gómez PEER runs for the first time, you will be required to enter the username and password that you choose when you registered it will then be virtually unnoticeable on your PC. A small icon in your system tray will indicate that its running "in the background" of your machine. Double-clicking on this icon will launch the Gómez Peer screen so you can see how much you have earned. A 'right-click' on the icon will bring up a menu that allows you to quit the application. If you ever need to remove the program just go through add/remove as normal no problem.Step 4
When you first start running Gomez you are put in one of three states (Active, Pending Inactive) while the review your application and your online time.
· ACTIVE: Gómez has selected you to be paid every month for your Online Time and Processing Time.
· PENDING: Gómez has reviewed your application, but your system characteristics and system activity do not meet Gómez's current business needs. However, by continuing to run the PEER, you remain eligible to be selected as an Active PEER because we continue to track your online availability.
· INACTIVE: Gómez has not received your application or your Online Time has fallen below the minimum monthly threshold of 30 hours. Inactive PEERs are not paid for their Online Time and Processing Time.
You can also install the program under your username on more than one machine as long as under machine name you call them something different,,,,great for those with networks.Money
Gomez runs the whole time I am connected, I'm a dial up user and have never found it to be a problem in slowing up my connection even when its processing a work unit. (I'd be interested to hear if broadband uses make more money seeing as they have more bandwidth to process work). I am connected most evenings and all day at weekends with the PC being left connected overnight some times.Like I said not loads of money but it goes straight to my PayPal account, which I add to my Ciao money, its nice to build up. I've not referred anyone yet so I'm not sure how much of an impact that will make but if any of you join using my name as the referrer (KezzaG) I'll let you know.
Ooh and before I go some more good news
Gomez's current client list of clients includes 300-plus Fortune 1000 companies, including over two-thirds of the top financial institutions in North America. Network Computing also recently recognized Gomez as the best Internet performance monitoring service. This is all good news as the more clients they have the more they will need our PC's and the more money we will make.

Thanks to Cripple who has joined up and been activated (took him ten days to be activated which is quicker than my two weeks) although there are a couple others who have signed up and not been activated yet will update this when they do so you can see how long it took them, I got $1:00 for the referal so im guessing that is the standard amount,And to answer a couple of questions from Gomez FAQ
Is the Gómez PEER secure? Does it provide access to my personal files or data?The Gómez PEER was designed with security in mind. The PEER defines a "sandbox" on your machine that sets advanced security policies to prevent unauthorized access. Also, the information passed between your machine and our server is encrypted using SSL.
The PEER does not allow access to your personal files or data. It only processes the work that is sent to it by Gómez's servers. For this reason, the PEER will not allow your computer to "catch" viruses. The information sent to the Gómez PEER is in message form (not in file form, like an e-mail attachment). Your files and privacy are not compromised by the Gómez PEER
