I've been a bit busy lately on the latest silly program that I seem to have been spending quite a lot of time on of late. It is actually in use in our department at the moment, displaying messages on our "Big Plasma Display". Everyone seems to like it, although apparently the jokes get a bit tiresome after you have read them a few times. Or even just once.

Anyhoo, feel free to download and play with it (the link is on the left). If you like it let me know. I'm working on a better version with a clock and maybe even picture rendering and a different backdrop.

Very nice, love the background that it does. Sometimes I don't get quite enough time to read what all was on the screen before it switches to the next article though. Along those lines, what exactly is it pulling in? I check here and your blog almost daily for new activity, and often read the comments also. Would be nice if somehow comments could get listed in also. Even if the page is then too long to fit on the screen, can't a arrow key of mouse wheel scroll me implemented? Overall very cool!

Thanks,

Shawn

I'm going to do some more work on the speed. At the moment it scrolls long messages too soon after they are displayed. But I'm glad you like it.
