I mentioned this idea a while ago in another part of the forum, but am wondering if I put it in the wrong section.
The idea is to have a screensaver that refreshes the pixels on the screen but keeps updating the current data on the screen.
The DimScreen screensaver does this when the screen is dimmed. It continues to update information on the screen until the selected screensaver kicks in (which I can tell it to do after three hours). But that's only half of what I want.....
Could a new program be made (or a version update to DimScreen) that dims the screen (or not), continuously updates information displayed on the screen, and moves some pixels around to keep them from getting stuck? I think an inverse vertical line of 1-10 pixels could move from left to right would do the trick, or maybe bouncing bubbles like the screensaver in vista and win7.
I know some people say that LCD monitors don't suffer from burn in, but I see it happen all the time. I work at a water/wastewater treatment plant and the screens have to be on 24x7 and they display the same header and footer on the screen for months at a time, which get stuck in place even on the best of monitors.
If someone could help me out with this, that would be great. Thanks. :)
