Hello all. I was a member a number of years ago under the old SETI software. For whatever reason I stopped participating. Since I retired from work a few months ago I find myself with extra time and computer usage. Yesterday I decided to reactivate and start processing data again. Ive got Bonic up and running and Im well into my first new chunk of data. One question, under the old SETI software I had a screensaver that, at least appeared as if it was showing the processing of data in real time. Is that still available under Bonic and if so where does one download or install it from? Thanks, good to be back. #ni-1

Hi, Sir Bear,

Welcome back to the Loony Bin!

I can't help you on the screen saver, even back on the old seti software I set it up to run as a service...

Hello Dancing Bear and welcome to the New Order,

During the installation of BOINC software you are asked if you would like to set BOINC as a screen-saver (of course, if you are not installing it as a service as bpowe does). If your answer is affirmative, the active Project's WU shows in it.

But I do not have any experiences with it, because I am not using any screen-savers.

Good luck in your quest and do not hesitate to join The Knights Who Say NI! (that "!" is very important, because there are lot of fake teams pretending to be us ). We are rarely dancing, but we are always ready for any silly quest. Especially those involving some shrubberies #ni-2

Cheers #ni-1
