We are looking for a freelancer who can create a screensaver for our business.
We will be allowing users to upload images to a website via username and password. The images will be renamed upon upload to a format decided by us. User related information and the path to the images uploaded will be kept in a database.
The screensaver will connect to the webserver, request for an XML document with the username and password. As a response, it will be given a list of online image files. Then the screensaver will display these images with simple transitions such as fade, grow, etc.
For the cases where there is no Internet connection or no image uploaded by a user, default images (up to 10) will be embedded into the screensaver.
The screensaver should post the client username and password in a secure manner (we will not be using ssl, so you must use other measures of security such as basic encryption).
