This is the stock redmine theme but it hides the 'top-menu', the 'header', and the 'sidebar'.

The theme automatically refreshes every 30 sec, via a full page refresh.

This theme is very useful for a projector, or flatscreen operation office status view. It should not be used as a system wide theme.
