And yet I can't get a single workunit!
Maybe it's a banned thing.

Didn't you stash up with LHC WU's? Remember, the Pirates WU's have a short deadline, so if you have filled your cache with WU's, your long term debts will prevent you from downloading the Pirate WU's. And you can be sorry, LHC doesn't export stats, your RAC will slump, and you missed the special Christmas edition of the Pirate WU's!

And believe me, that video is a pale imitation of the real graphics! :-P

They are cursed! If you keep the graphic open to enjoy the fine little Christmas greeting, it's eating up your resources, it crashes and it crashes your BOINC client also, so to get out of the mess you'll need to exit and start again.

See my post here: http://pirates.spy-hill.net/forum_thread.php?id=689&nowrap=true#4365

Some of them are fast and they finish without any problems, but Eric has created some longer, where they crash with the message: "maximum disk usage exceeded"

So just hope that yours are not of cursed ones.
