We need a screen saver. It helps us in recruiting when non-crunchers come past our desks.

Screen savers are a great calling card.

just came by the forums to post this exact thing, I have been an LHC@home member for a while and they JUST started sending WU\'s and I noticed I suddenly had a new screensaver and it was so exciting! And the screensaver is so simple, its just a bunch of colored particles flying around and a status bar, it also says what team you are on.

What is the status of the screensaver? I know that its been on the backburner for a long time now, but the above poster is right, it would seriously help recruit non-crunchers. Even my girlfriend was excited when I told her the new screensaver was us helping the particle accelerator because she actually has heard about it.

Yes an optional screen saver would be nice.

At least show some picture explaining newest research results. Like World Community Grid's tasks do.

This sounds like a great idea! I will bring it to the attention of our system administrator.

Best wishes,

The original request for a screen saver (2 Oct, 2008) is over 6 years old.

Obviously there are programmers available with the needed skills, or BOINC and C@H itself could not run on the many platforms it does.

Thus it would seem that C@H has no intention of providing the requested screen savers. Have I mis-read matters?
