My first pirates wu has arrived. Having waited a month or so to get this Im pretty excited.

It doesnt work. Ive got 4 jack wus in the pirates folder and a lalane application. Unfortunately they are not showing up in the Boinc worklist so I goes to pirates webpage and there's no e-mail address I can find and the message board and QA's are not working.

Aaarg!!! 50 pieces of silver to the first man who gives me Captain Jack Sparrow.

Well, perhaps just a contact route so I can feedback.

They're latest tests aren't working. :)

My linux box got the same thing, downloaded files but nothing to crunch. Other computers on the site that are showing "no reply" for all of the recent work units meaning we're not the only ones. :)

The Pirates project is an early stage development effort. The last time that I looked, they were not ready for any more users.

I've only received a single WU from them, and that was a while back. It crashed and burned though...

Presumably they are not yet interested in what happens after thy've downloaded the wu's. I just dont understand why there is no route for feedback, it would seem essential for them to develop the site.

I believe they don't actually want feedback yet. Otherwise they would at least get the message boards happening or something...
