    A screensaver will get a lot more people crunching this project.I doesnt have to be remotely similar to the project.I thought you could have green numbers \"falling\" like in the maxtrix with the time progress etc.

      Pirates@home’s “starboard” test application has a very similar screensaver. Of course there are various ‘dumb’ screensavers available that emulate The Matrix’s falling-numbers display.

      A couple of ideas involving some kind of fractal graphic have been kicked around here before, probably somewhere in the wish-list thread*. IIRC Ádám said then that he had something in mind to work on whenever he found the time, but I guess the task hasn’t managed to ‘bubble up’ very high in his to-do list.

      * Which reminds me of one of mine: a search function for these forums.

        Though a reminder is free.

        About a search function, it\'s here
        Can\'t do better presently.

        What\'s your idea ?

          Thanks; I should have remembered that posting.

          It was a wish … which now needs amending: links to the search function. Not a high priority, since you’ve shown us the back door, so to speak.

            Newest version of the forum software has the search boxes more clearly displayed.

            You can see \'em over on the the BOINC forums along with the PM system.

            Backend probably needs updated here anyways to make it work with the new 64 bit client (in testing) from Berkeley.

                I think for a kick-off I\'ll make a ss with a constant image, just to have something.

                If you like BOINC, you may also find CaretCursor to be appealing.
