NFSNet

NFSNet is a distributed computing project that factors very, very large numbers. As of the start of 2004, it was working on a number with 245 digits.

The name comes from the number field sieve, a relatively fast algorithm used to determine possible combinations of integers that can be multiplied together to make the number in question.
