Your current screansaver?

What screensaver are you using right now? This is not just a question of curiosity, but also I wanna see if you can hook me up with some awesome screensavers I haven't got. At the moment I'm using the Matrix Code Emulator - in anticipation for Reloaded, you see.

I would also have no screensaver, but I got a new hard drive for christmas, and in the process of reinstalling everything, i haven't even had the chance to disable it yet. Now, I have that crappy flying windows logo one that comes with xp.

Surely if you left the same image showing on your monitor all day (i.e. the desktop) there is a chance that the image would get permanently burned into the screen. You know like what happens at airports.

Or have they fixed that on CRTs?

Amen. I let the monitor go to sleep after 10 minutes. Saves power, won't burn-in the screen.

I thought they fixed the problem with images being burnt in CRT's a LONG time ago.


Reminds me of this from the computer stupidities page for some reason though:
Quote:
My girlfriend is fond of The Little Mermaid, so she downloaded the free Little Mermaid screensaver offered at disney.com. After a month of using the screen saver, I got on to use the word processor, and I noticed I could see the words "Disney's The Little Mermaid" faintly at the bottom of my document. The screensaver, instead of "saving" the screen, caused those words to burn in on the monitor. High five to the geniuses who designed the thing.

Cool! I always wanted one of those matrix Code ones!!! Where'd you get it? Right now I'm using a Saint Tail one... I want a Dilandau one but I have no idea where there is one... (Or if there is one in existence period.)

Burning in the screen is basically nonexistant with modern monitors. Screensavers are just another thing to slowdown your computer at the sake of calling it 'personalized' and 'pretty.'

(power saver option.)

Oooh, old thread.

I just have it switch off the monitor. When this one is first switched on, all the other monitors in the house take a hit as it rapes the power supply*

*it's plugged directly into the four-way connected to the wall socket, not via a computer PSU.

I actually have no current screensaver. The monitor turns off after about 15 minutes, so there is no point. I used to use the default "Mandrake Slideshow" however.
