Pirates@Home is the beta test for Einstein@Home.

Does it have a gui screensaver? Or is it boring like Predictor at home?

The website says it has simple screensaver graphics, but I've yet to see any work from the project, so I can't comment on whether it's boring or not.

I was lucky enough to have one work unit for Pirates@home (anyone know why it's named that? Seems to have nothing to do with Einstein or space). I think my computer processed it in like 3 minutes, as opposed to the 2.5hrs that a SETI result takes. So I guess it was just a test WU. I haven't seen one since, and from the website it seems that lots more people have signed up recently so there aren't many WU's to go around. :(

I think between Einstein@home, Astropulse, and SETI@home I'm going to have enough crunching to go around. Time to start saving money to buy more computers. :)

I have since received one. It was quick, but it crashed and burned. Interesting naming conventions going on there as well.

WU jack(and some numbers) processed by lalane(and some numbers). Not sure what's up with that... ;-)
