AAARGH! Welcome, mates, to the Primates@Home project!

Primates@Home is a distributed computing project which makes fun of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. Primates@Home is currently testing what happens to primates when you disturb the natural environment to which they have become accustomed. Do they react with confusion? Bemusement? Anger and hostility? A mixture of these? Our observations today will help answer this important question. But please keep in mind that Primates@Home is not doing any real scientific computation, we are just making fun of BOINC volunteers.


Welcome to the Monkey House! Primates@Home is taking the place of that other BOINC project you might have been expecting here. We hope you don't mind a little monkeying around today.
