Electricsheep.org seeks programmers and web developers for internships starting ASAP. A new version of the evolving distributed screen-saver is approaching, and the time is now to make a difference. Get paid to do open source, part time! After two weeks of 8 hours each at $20/hour and a warm-up project, we'll negotiate hours and rates for the main course. We are looking for people skilled with DHTML, Drupal/php, Mac OS X Objective-C programming, and Windows C++. Especially exciting are candidates ready to jump into Android, OLPC, Laszlo, pd, Miro, or GPGPU. Or you tell me what you always wished the sheep could do and we'll make it happen. Location: NYC and online. Please submit your resume in text or PDF by email to the address on the bottom of my homepage. Thanks!
yay Dina and Jared!
It's at 1/10th quality until we have about 10 users, then I'll crank it up. (Update 10/31: done, see the new server here. Update 11/16: undone, back to draft.) Bug reports and compatibility issues most welcome.
The protocol design wiki.

Version 2.6.9 updates by Jeff Sickel and spot
Principally supports having a cache directory that consists of subtrees from bittorrent downloads. Instructions for the torrent feed can be found at http://draves.org/blog/archives/000379.html. Just have your torrents moved into the cache directory on completion.
Cleaner loop selection instigated from commentary issued by: Michael Hohimer in http://draves.org/HyperNews/get.cgi/flame/2506.html Tom Lane in http://draves.org/HyperNews/get.cgi/flame/2506/1.html
Code base cleaned up in preparation for 2.7--much of the source closer to reference C code by Spot.
Animation frame selection now controlled by ScreenSaverView's -animateOneFrame method instead of using additional timers for MPEG2View's control.
Additional updates for Apple IR Remote.
Replaced CURLHandle with NSURLConnection api to support proxy configurations. Depending on your site configuration\ , you may need to add /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app to your http\ proxy keychain.
Exposed a prior developer options from build 2.6.4 for saving generated flame frames. Settings can be found in the\ Desktop & Screen Saver preferences under "Render".
Added support for Apple's Remote on the new line of machines with the IR device. Code pulled from http://www.marti\ nkahr.com/source-code and supports:
- kRemoteButtonVolume_Plus votes 'yes'
- kRemoteButtonVolume_Minus votes 'no'
- kRemoteButtonMenu displays status
- kRemoteButtonMenu_Hold hides status
and when iTunes is enabled:
- kRemoteButtonPlay play/pause iTunes
- kRemoteButtonRight next track
- kRemoteButtonLeft previous track
It's possible the server or your client will crash, possibly resulting in all your sheep being deleted. So now would be a good time for backups :) i've slowed the generation way down to give a chance for word about this to get out. if all goes as planned you won't even notice that anything happened but you never know... my fingers are crossed!
