I prefer Idea 1 oder 2, or a posibility to chose between them.
So, two years left now, please create a visualizer....it would be great! :)
So i would leave my graphic cards run on milky way even more! ;-)

greetings from Germany

Th' BOINC screensaver dae it pure dead brilliant. Closes anyway by switchting tae th' black screen after ah braw few minutes. Sounds very good with all th' graphic disco lookalike lights, but feel it is important tae use th' machines power for process data, rather than looking good.

I agree with most here: hybrid of Idea 1 and Idea 2. I'd like to see real-time information regarding what data my infrastructure is crunching, and real-time progress, along with correlations between that and how it is assisting MilkyWay@Home... while it might be taxing on some GPUs, I do think some kind of rudimentary simulation running (that is rudimentary) would suffice just to show the basics. I'd like to see this, and look forward to it. Just make sure it runs on both Windows and Linux/*nix.

Are there any graphics that are currently usable at this time? or is this something being worked on? Sorry if I'm asking a redundant question. I've been crunching for a couple of years here but never really have visited because there's nothing to look at to interest me and which can tell me how much we've done already, etc., like Seti@home has. I've been with them for years and love the graphics and screensaver. Just wanted to throw my two cents in and support the idea! Thanks!

Hallo !
Are there any graphics that are currently usable at this time? or is this something being worked on?

I also find it uesefull to have this, even if it´s not running every time, as it consumes GPU-power. But it´s usefull to show the family and/or friends etc., whatfore we are spending attention, time and last but not least money. It´s a sort of advertising for this valuable project too.
If it is available, why isn´t it by simply reach of a button on the page of BOINC-Manager/Project/MilkyWay as in E@H? That would make it simple and comfortable.

Kind regards and happy crunching

Aside from consuming resources that could otherwise be used for science, there is the distinct possibility that any graphic display could be pretty lines on a screen and have nothing to do with the actual work being done.

Hallo!
....consuming resources that could otherwise be used for science

That´s why such a easily available button for switching the screensaver on/off is so usefull. It just avoids this unneccesarary consuming of resources.
But this button should be on page BOINC-Manger/Tasks/MW@H.

Kind regards and happy crunching.
