Hello I have created a simple screensaver front-end for miners. Check out my website when the download exists.
There are no viruses or trojans - I care about my reputation. *source code now downloadable from website*
I made it as a simple way to run my bitcoin miners on my home pc's when there idle. It displays the hash rate and logging.
Currently I have only tested it with python OpenCL bitcoin miner.

Any comments / criticism / suggestions would be great. Anything I can do to make it better - speak up let me know.

Thanks everyone

Jason

i'm sure that someone will test it sooner or later, but without source code your statement is only as good as your reputation and frankly i don't see how one post newbie have any (and as i don't need this particular program i won't do any check on you... if you want people to test it and execute some random code on their PCs it would be much simpler for you to give us something beside one day old website)

no offence, just an observation

I've created an application that works in a similar fashion, but is not a screensaver. It can be used to stealth-launch a miner when a computer becomes idle and end it when the computer becomes active again. (sort of like a screensaver)

My app can be found here:

Haha awesome, I thought of doing something similar but didn't want a program always running in the background to poll for idle. Thus leveraging screensavers which are run on demand by windows.

If any one has specifically tried the phoenix miner please please post a screen shot if problems result from output of my front-end screensaver

I have been trying to get the phoenix miner to work with the screensaver but output to console being redirected to an inputstream seems to happen at a very low frequency. It is sorta working, but the updates do not display in a timely manner.

I have uploaded an update to the BitCoinMinerSaver and just wanted to let everyone know. The updated sourcecode is also available.
I tried all last night to get the updates from Phoenix Miner to update faster in the Standard Input stream but to no avail. The miner works in the background, but the updates for the Hash rate etc only come up every minute or so.

The m0mchil/poclbm miner works best, with an update every second on the screen to display the hash rate and mining activity log.


Thanks again.

One hint for anyone else using this: make sure that the Windows power setting has "turn off monitor" set to "never". Once the monitor powers off, the mining stops.

On another note, I have successfully gotten this to run, but it seems to work for only one GPU. Is there a way to make this work for more than one GPU?
