I'm not a windows hacker at all, but I think this is one thing that could get
us a *lot* more clients. Make a W95 screen saver that'll crack keys. Because
W95 multitasking sucks so bad, most people will not want to have the client
run at all times. Also, it's annoying to have to start it up every time you're
going to be away for while. A screen saver would solve these problems by only
running when the machine is idle anyway. Somebody should put together a cute
animation which can be replayed at one frame every 2^20 keys, or maybe even
more. I don't think a screen saver is much more than a DLL windows loads when
the box has been idle for a while, so this shouldn't be too hard. Anybody
willing to try this?
