We investigate the multi-wavelength, multiple timescale appearance of Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) brightpoints over the current solar cycle through the eyes of SOHO's Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT). Over the past 8 years EIT has built up an unprecidented dataset to facilitate the study of these ubiquitous coronal phenomena. Using an automated detection algorithm we explore their physical and statistical characteristics over the cycle to-date and ponder the mechanism behind their generation in several specific instances of note.
