Icon Electric Sheep 3.0

This software owes its name to Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It realizes the collective dream of sleeping computers from all over the internet.
When the screen-saver is activated, the screen goes black and an animated 'sheep' appears. Behind the scenes, the screen-saver contacts a server and joins the parallel computation of new sheep. Every fifteen minutes 24/7 a new sheep is born and distributed to all clients for display. Each sheep is an animated fractal flame.
This program is recommended only if you have a high-bandwidth, always-on connection to the internet such as DSL or cable modem. For best results, let it run overnight to collect a whole flock. Laptop users might have to adjust their power settings to accomplish this.

Icon LotsaSnow 1.6

This one draws snowflakes falling down your screen. Simple enough, but the oh-so-clever part is that it uses a semi-physical model (that I pulled out of my ass) for growing each snowflake, meaning every snowflake is unique (as well they should be!) and also that it uses a quite a bit of processing power. But that's the price you pay for individuality!

Icon PongSaver 2.1.1

When the game begins, the score is set to the current time. The left side's score is the current hour (in 24-hour time), and the right side's score is the current minute. Then, the right side scores about once a minute to keep up with the real clock. When it gets to 59, the next score makes it wrap around to 00, and the left side will score shortly afterwards to bring the hour forward. At midnight, left's score wraps around to 00.

And the feedback I've had has been amazing! I've had literally 100s of emails from people saying this is now their favourite aquarium screen saver. With so much competition, that's pretty high praise!

icon 3D Desktop Butterflies 1.2

I spent ages trying to make them actually fly like butterflies. Sort of random and fluttery. When I looked at a couple of other butterfly screen savers they all flew in a very basic "flap... flap... flap" fashion which made them look like a wind up aeroplane kinda deal. Still not sure I've got it quite right, but I do think it's cool to watch. And the way they land on both the desktop and the "glass" of your monitor I think looks nice too. I dunno, I just like it!
