I saw mention of an LHC Six Track screen saver. How do I go about getting this? I installed Boinc and it asked if I wanted to use their screen saver, so I said no. I figured that was different then the LHC specific project screensaver. Now, I\'ve installed the Boinc LHC project, and seem lost as to finding the LHC screensaver.

I've got the same problem after I have re-join in the project

See http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/forum_thread.php?id=3249, wherein Igor Zacharov writes:
SixTrack is a computational program... Part of our problems in the past was related to bugs in the graphics part, which hampered the advance of the computation. Therefore, we have decided to cut the graphics off completely.

I do agree that visual attraction is important. We plan to resurect the screen saver, but it should not be coupled to the program any more. The screensaver
could be fed the cumulative effect of the study to give it informative sense.

Having said that, the priority on the graphics project is low, I must admit.
If there are volunteers to help with the screensaver it would be great.
