BOINC projects news signature images are now available
for all the projects here;

The BOINC project news signature image generator takes the latest news from the most popular BOINC science projects and generates an image containing that news. Its the same news you see displayed on the project news page on the website. You can display the image that YOU designed in your forum signature or any website. Once you program the options for the type, project, colour and number of news items, a code is generated just below the image and you can simply copy the code for the image you programmed.

You can select news from all BOINC projects, a single project or you can tick boxes to select your own specific group of projects (Very handy to exclude news from projects you're not interested in!). There are several different background colours to choose from and you can choose to display 1, 2 or 3 news items. Displaying 3 news items in the image looks great but the image is quite large and you might prefer to keep the image smaller by selecting just 1 or 2 news items.

Important note; Worth noting that the most active image that will change most frequently will be if you select "Type 1" and "All BOINC projects" or "Type 2" and a very large collection of single projects. Some projects produce regular daily or weekly news but other projects might not produce news for a long time. The image is updated every 3 hours regardless.

This is a great way to get the very latest news from your favourite projects and display the news on the forums and websites you visit. Its also a great way to promote your favourite BOINC projects.

Some examples;
News from this website "BOINC" with only one news item;

News from SETI@home with 2 news items and a black background;

News from World Community Grid with 3 news items;

News from all BOINC projects;
