Project Overview
Pirates@Home is just a test of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. Our current goal is to test and possibly modify the BOINC forum code for use by an unrelated (to BOINC, anyway) project called Interactions in Understanding the Universe (I2U2). We welcome anybody who wants to help out with this project, either by running workunits (when there are any) or trying out the forum and server software. In any case, it is important that you always keep in mind that  we are not actually doing any production computing  for that or any other scientific project. (At least not yet.)

Pirates@Home was previously used to develop both experience and software (including a nifty screensaver) leading to the creation of Einstein@Home, which is currently searching for evidence of gravitational waves. We hope you'll join the search.

The following applications are supported:

Microsoft Windows X86  (32bit)
Linux X86                     (32bit)
