video preview (Ogg format,
only 320x240 view).

The idea is quite simple: people use their PC to come to Wikiversity. Why don't we give them the possibility to make more with their pc when they are not active there ? With this screen saver they can also make advertisement for us. Imagine ... the screen saver running in schools, universities, or anywhere else. This increases awareness.


prototype[edit]

The following is just a prototype to show you what it is about:

it has background pictures and the RSS feed to the recent changes in the middle, which you can scroll down or up and on the right it shows the according xml/html changes.

here is the

  • prototype 0.04en (please read the _info_en.txt; so far it is only available for Windows)
  • video preview (avi file - 1152x864 - compressed with xvid mpeg-4) and


used tool: Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition Starter Kit: Screen Saver

improve it ![edit]

As said this is just a prototype to illustrate the idea. Please continue the spark, let's make some big fire :-)

Other completely different screen savers are possible, e.g.

  • other/several background images
  • dynamic objects
  • sound
  • without RSS feed - when being offline
  • other operating systems ?

...

Do you have comments, ideas, problems ?
