You want to share this project and increase the community? Show a cute screen saver. It doesn't even need to actually mean something. You have nice anomated GIFs on your web pages, why not put something like that as the scren saver? I am just an old shallow Windows user. I have a very simple value proposition. I give you lots of CPU time on several PCs in my home office and my family, and in return I want a warm and fuzzy feeling and a killer screen saver. SETI embraced this, RIP. World Community Grid understands this but they have been down for months. I have yet to find a BOINC project with screen saver graphics to fill this void. Rosetta is better than nothing. LHC teases me with a Show Graphics button but no screen saver. Is there anything else out there? Please help the little guys with more GPU cycles than morals. Thanks! DJ

LHC@home uses the Show Graphics button to switch to the VM console if a VirtualBox task is selected.
Hence, there will not be a screen saver.
