      This is an old wish from the crunching community. Running a screensaver depicting the ongoing processing would use more CPU cycles than the research itself, and this of course cannot be accepted. When Adam will have finished solving the more important issues, he will think about a workable solution (see his post http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/forum_thread.php?id=274#2671).

      Maybe Adam could organise a competition for a screensaver that shows the progress of the WU. The users make suggestions, the mathematicians from Eotvos Lorand University check the feasibility and we vote for our preferred screensaver. The RCN project organised a competition to find a logo. (By the way, I find the Sztaki logo wonderful!)

        I would like a screensaver too, Specialy now it got this working with \"boinc as a service\". The screensaver does not have to show exactly what is going on, it\'s enough, if it shows someting related to the science that looks interesting, even if most of the picture is static.

        What CPU power concerns, think of this; ...
        The screensaver is only visible part of the CPU-idle-time until it\'s blanked-out (e.g. because you configured that you want the screensaver pop-in after 10 minutes, blank the screen after 44 minutes (no wasted CPU cycles anymore for the pretty pictures) and go into monitor powersaving mode after 45 minutes (to save the backlight of your LCD)). All times from the last keypress or mousemovement, i.e. the time counted from the last user activity.
