Pirates@Home is a test of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. One goal of the project is to help develop a screensaver for Einstein@Home. At present Pirates@Home is not doing any real scientific computation. We are just having fun with BOINC. You can read more about Pirates@Home Research Goals here.

The goal of Einstein@Home is to use distributed public computing to provide the computational power needed to search for gravitational radiation using data from the LIGO and GEO 600 gravity wave detectors. You can participate in Einstein@Home here.

    June 14, 2005   Pirates@Home hacked!
    The Pirates@Home server was hacked on Sunday morning, June 12th. The intrusion was detected quickly and the machine was blocked from the network. Getting back up required a full system inspection and re-install, and we used the opportunity to perform an already planned system upgrade. Details will be posted to the forums when the database server is back on-line.   [link]
