Screen saver

Convert it so it can work as a screen saver as well... That would be awesome.

On top of converting it into a screen saver it would be even more awesome if it could display all of the people currently online (in the lobby, playing a game, joining, etc) and the meta server tracks their player name and ip location and plots them on the "3d spinning global" screen saver..

or perhaps the screen-saver has an option to spectate diplomacy games (until the 15/15 becomes full) and plot/render the game on the 3d screensaver..

Given that the hardware is identical, and that Macs can run Windows, I don't see any reason to conclude that Macs can do less than PCs. ;)

Until someone finds or makes a similar screensaver for PC, here is a cool one. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Miscellaneous/Orbitron.shtml It is a free program that shows the orbit of most satellites and has a very cool screensaver. If you know which ones to select in the list, you can find most military sigint/imint/DSP/other satellites on it. I can post a list of most of the interesting satellites if anyone wants (most of them have generic names like USA-124, which mean nothing on their own), or you can figure it out on your own if you know how to analyze the orbits etc.
