Make use of idle computer screens

Use the idle computer screens around campus to show event-(and regular)-announcements as a screensaver. Similar to the slideshows on the screens everywhere. Groups would, ideally, be able to submit their event flyers to the system and get information out all over campus quite easily.

The staff could refill the paper and students could quickly print instead of swiping into snell and waiting in those longs lines.
