Hello all - I'm on no more drugs than usual, but I can't stop the whole thing from spinning. I like the layout of the Enhanced version but the bouncing off the four walls of my screen make it not as fun to watch as the classic version. I'm not worried about screen burning cos it's set to go to blank screen after an hour. I'm experimenting with the horizontal and vertical oscillation ranges but I don't see any change. Surely this must be an option I'm missing somewhere? Would Shirley even understand my question?

Well apparently it just took a while to recognize my new settings - putting the horizontal and vertical oscillation period and range to 0 stopped it from spinning. Now I'm kinda looking down on it tilted - I becha playing with different numbers will give me different angles.

Hopefully this helps some similarly spiralling sucker out there...

You may find this interesting SETI@Home Classic (Emulation).

OK, I've just restarted with SETI@Home after a couple of years absence and I have the same problem, but I can't find any way to adjust the "horizontal and vertical oscillation ranges." Where do I go to tweak such settings?

Click on Your Account at the top of the page, then click on SETI@home Preferences, and the Horizontal and Vertical Period and Range fields are in the middle of the page. Set them to zero.
