Submission + - Your system administrators room like in the movies (vanheusden.com)

flok writes: "We all know the fancy computer screens in movies and tv series. All kinds of non-comprehensible information scrolls by, merely looking fancy. An often heard complaint is that when managers/sales persons walk into the system administrators room, they see a lot of screens they don't understand and which look boring. This made me think: why not implement something that involves a lot of animations, fancy scrolltexts, colors, etc while still giving usefull information? So I started to work on SysopView. It has moving windows, scrolltexts, can show live webcam streams, nagios status, mrtg graphs and lots more. I would like this to be a community project. There must be a lot of ideas out there how to improve it and — maybe some can even write code! Please check http://www.vanheusden.com/sysopview/ It is still in its infant state. And yes, that's me in the video :-)"
