I tried several things to stop the rotation of the stars. I would think it would be nice to be able to stop it from rotating (and keep it stopped)?

I love the look of it.

So what does it mean by all the different colors
White, purple, and red dots?
Then the green and blue lines?

Total Credit seem to work, but the Host Credit is zero ?

When we get keyboard input working you'll be able to control the speed,
probably with > and Total Credit seem to work, but the Host Credit is zero ?

I've seen that too, but then I thought it was fixed. I guess not.

We'll have a legend page soon. Brief summary is that the purple dots represent
known pulsars, while the dark red are super novae remenants (SNR's).
The blue, green and red markers show the current zenith position of the LIGO
and GEO600 interferometers.

It was fixed in BOINC 4.5x but sextant was built with 4.13 so it's not
fixed there. At least that is the likely explaination.

I have seen the hosts credit on two hosts last night. I have recognized some other things:
- This time i haven't seen a grid.
- The position of GEO600 and LIGO where back.
- The expected computation time is now greater than the real computation time.
- At the end of the computation, the percentage went to 0% for a second or two.
