    Is this sort of idea possible? Ie take an arbitrarily produced
Mathematica animation and send it in to a screen saver program.

Better yet,has anyone thought like those guys at the Seti Institute and
written any coding that just tells the computer to do nothing but
mathematical rendering computations in its spare time? Just think, we
could tell Mathematica to calculate a whole bundle of elements of some
huge power sets, etc write the data output directly to what could
eventually potentially become a huge database of different cases of
possibilities of the output of one or more problems? At the same time,
we could have Mathematica show off its plotting abilities to those who
have thought about why to consider using Mathematica.

Are there any sorts of interests from anyone in starting up such a
designing of a mathematica screen saver mainframe connection to the
source (ie the kernel) and vice-versa? Also, does anyone really know how
complex this Seti software computation stuff gets? Does it stand above
or in the shadows of the great mathematica Kernel?
