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.

is always under development, so please don't expect it to work all

We 'found our keys', and now the scheduler is up and unrestricted. We

The download problem has been fixed. It was just a missing directory,
not a problem with signatures. We are continuing to 'tweak' and try out
the whole cycle of work creation and validation with BOINC 4.
8 September 2004
New account creation has been enabled. We are mostly converted over to
BOINC 4 but there are still a few problems. In particular downloading of
executables (BOINC itself or applications) is not working correctly,
probably due to bad file signatures. We will post a note when it's fixed.
