No, I just made the button prettier. I like the click on board/show message action.

Max, I'm not sure how you can accidentally click on the board often (when the

In general a user might not be sure what is happening and clicking the board and
nothing happening isn't the best answer. Maybe the message could be improved to
something like, "The computer is thinking, interrupt the current process?".
