Why are there no graphics with most or all of the models being released now?

I've check my settings and I cannot see anything that I've missed. I'm running SETI@Home alongside and its graphics are working fine.

Thanks.

There haven’t been any graphics for a couple of years now. They took a lot of work and were really just eye candy. They were nice, especially the ones that went with the “Famous” project.

Jim,

Thanks for your response.

The graphics provided much more than eye candy. It made the models come alive.

Graphics gave us feedback as to what was happening and what may happen in the future. As it stands now, we get very little feedback.

I would like to present BOINC to the local school system to see if there is any interest from their science departments, and was thinking of showcasing CPDN as a project of interest. However, without graphics I think the students would lose interest in it as it would just be jobs running in a job queue, with nothing to see and analyze.

Keeping people interested in this project should be a major concern, and graphics is definitely one way to do it.

Just my humble opinion...
