What's your screen saver?

Recommended Posts

Same with Lessinath. When I'm not using my laptop I automatically shut the lid by habit, and when I'm away from my desktop the monitor goes off (either on its own after a half hour or by me manually pressing the button, depending on how lazy I am that day). I should put one on again one of these days.

Flying toasters!! Ah, I miss those days.

 

I'm running the "random" option on my Mac.

I miss the days of the 3D Maze. :)

 

All the Vista and 7 screensavers are boring and repetitive, too. I totally think they should bring back the maze in both forms, the 3D one and that 2D one which I remember seeing on Linux but was really fun to watch.

 

My current favorite is the scrolling text, as you can make it say whatever you want (including the current time, which was the last thing I had it set to years ago).

I know! I was such a big fan of the "After Dark" collection. Ah, memories...

My favorite screen saver was Johnny Castaway. I used to spend hours watching it :P

Loved the 3D maze as well.

And as well as Lessinath and BigOto2, I don't have any screensaver. I just shut the monitor and on my laptop, it's a black screen.

I once put a picture of a girl I had a huge crush on when I was about 12 or so on those walls, but unfortunately, it was (a) distorted and (B) rather creepy. :P

I've done similar things to that before, more along the lines of playing things I probably shouldn't have in random Scrabble games when I was a few years younger. I still have a picture of a particularly embarrassing Scrabble board. My PB Gourami levelset was another example but it didn't specifically involve what J.B. mentioned (no levels named after any hot girls, but some other things that are just about as bad). Very embarrassing and immature of myself.

My screensaver right now is the 3D Pipes!

 

Back when I had Windows 95, I used to have the "Bad Dog!" one. It was hilarious to watch that dog rip through your screen and take a whiz on your recycle bin (Y)

3D Pipes is a fun one, I always liked to watch and see how far it would get before erasing it all, sometimes the whole screen would end up covered and others it would be barely at all before erasing.

I had a fish tank once, on this program there was also a rat race and other things I don't remember about.

 

So far in my life I've had 3 aquarium/fish screensavers, they are totally overrated but fun. A lot of games such as Fishdom which involve creating your own aquarium have screensaver features. I don't really use them much though, because certain parts of the tank never move which defeats the point of a screensaver which protects against damaging the screen.

Ah, the Rat Race! Was it to the William Tell Overture?

I'm pretty certain that the Flying Toasters soared to "The Flight of the Valkyries," which was even more amazing. :D
