    3939After the Officeshots.org staff have enabled your account for factory usage you can add factories to your account. A factory is a single computer that you have that participates in Officeshots.org. If you want to supply a Windows XP machine, a Linux machine and a smartphone then you would create three factories. To create a new factory, go to the Officeshots website and in the menu click `Factories` and then `Add another factory`. Then pick a name for it and fill in the hardware and operatingsystem fields.

    41 Next you can start adding workers to your factory. A worker is a specific office application that runs on your factory. If your Linux machine has !OpenOffice.org and Gnumeric installed then you would add four factories: ''!OpenOffice.org Writer'', ''!OpenOffice.org Calc'', ''!OpenOffice.org Impress'' and ''Gnumeric''. For every worker you need to select which office application it provides and the version number. The version number can be any string, such as ''2.4'' or ''2003 SP2''.

If your Linux machine has !OpenOffice.org and Gnumeric installed then you would add two factories: ''!OpenOffice.org'' and ''Gnumeric''. For every worker you need to select which office application it provides and the version number. The version number can be any string, such as ''2.4'' or ''2003 SP2''. You can also choose which document formats you want to support. For example, for !OpenOffice.org you can choose to only accept !OpenDocument Text and Spreadsheet files, omitting Presentations. Not all applications support all document types. When you choose an application, the document types that are not available will be greyed out.

    4343[[NoteBox(note, If you run !OpenOffice.org on Linux then you need to be careful which one you pick. Many distributions of Linux do not ship !OpenOffice.org but Go-OO. Go-OO is a version of !OpenOffice.org that is built by Novell and it is different from the standard !OpenOffice.org. If you are running Ubuntu, Debian, Frugalware or Gentoo then you are running Go-OO and not !OpenOffice.org. Please pick Go-OO in the application dropdown.)]] 
     
    4545[[NoteBox(note, In the future it will be possible to automatically configure your workers based on the local configuration file of your factory. For the moment you will need to create your workers manually on the Officeshots.org website. Make sure that the worker configuration on the website matches the worker configuration on your system or you will be given jobs by the central server that your factory cannot handle.)]]

     47For every worker you can also opt to participate in generating the ODF testsuites. Officeshots has several ODF testsuites imported. If you choose to participate then your factory will be given the files for these test suites. This only happens after you factory has been running stable (zero downtime) for 24 hours. 
     48 
     49[[NoteBox(warn, The ODF test suites are large. Several hundreds of documents and probably up to one thousand in the future. If you participate with multiple workers in the test suites then you factory could get many thousands of documents to process. Make sure you have the processing power and bandwidth to handle this!)]]
