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.


  • The Primates@Home database server is currently shut down. You can browse our web site but you cannot manage your account, view statistics, or use the message forums. Please come back later. Thanks.
