    The paper presents a necessary and sufficient condition for a given compact totally disconnected space C to be the projective limit of a given directed cone of epimorphisms onto finite discrete quotients of C. This problem is related to the question of when a compact totally disconnected algebra is profinite and some observations in this direction are recorded.
