Sorry as this is a bit off topic but one thing which *really* bugs me about
these stupid screen savers is the amount of CPU time and resources they can
gobble up. If you need to leave your workstation running some really
intensive job, the last thing you want is Joe Smart-arse's gimmicky screen
saver to cut in and grind things to a halt - those fancy OpenGL screen
savers on our workstations hit 80% CPU time!

Back to CE matters...
