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

Pirates@Home is an ongoing test of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. At present Pirates@Home is not doing any real scientific computation, we are just having fun testing BOINC. Read more about our current goals.


Pirates@Home is always under development, so please don't expect it to work all the time. In fact, right now we have very little work, just occasional tests.
