Random questions. Is it pronounced "bo-eenk" or "boynk"? And if its boynk, does it have anything to do with "scientific progress going boink?"?

I've always pronounced it "boynk" and have heard others the same.
Just the simple acronym from Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing is the genesis.
