LAN Party Suggestions Answered

So I'm having a new years LAN party this year. 14 hours of pure gaming should prove to be a fun night.

I have a 50 inch plasma in my basement where we will be having the party. I want to make the best use of this screen by putting some "stats" (for lack of a better word) on the screen.

Obviously the biggest problem with stats is that every games is different and there is no standard protocol to be used.

I am looking to the instructables community for ideas as to what I can put on this screen.

Some ideas that I had:

 - DHCP table
 - Midnight countdown (its new years)
 - Starfield Screensaver


Thanks!

That would b pretty badass if you had it display all the computers connected to the network.

or check site like http://www.lanpartymap.com/ and see if there is another LAN party on the same night that would do a video conference, so you could see what they were doing and vice-versa.
