a fancier progress bar? :)

actually that's not a bad idea, but more information could be displayed.

- time spent on current block
- total time since client was fired up
- total computer time since client was first installed

- keyrate on last block
- average keyrate   since client was fired up
- average keyrate since client was first installed

- dates and times for the above information

3d graphs would be overkill, but a progress bar and the above info, would
sure spruce up the display...

right now, if your machine is a bit slower, even the progress bar display
gets old after awhile...

i was working on something similar in perl, that emailed me the info (linux
only). and i was thinking of something gui in vb (a separate utiltity that
would parse the log file)....but if it was built into the client...
