These are a few saved pages that Pirates@Home redirected to for an April Fool prank in 2008. It was a clone of the Pirates site with a monkey template overlay.
The inspiration came from Chief Petty Officer Stainless Cutlass (Jord) when he mentioned that when he visited Pirates@Home shortly before this, he was strangely seeing Primates@Home instead.
It was a great adventure browsing the site to see the witty monkey alterations. An example was that users avatars were replaced with monkey themed pics.
This was mine.

The Pirates@Home site stopped redirecting a few days ago but it's good to see that Primates@Home stayed live this time.
