    Screensavers are useless, I have strict power-saving on my monitor instead.

    Why would I care what's on the screen when, by definition, I'm doing nothing with my computer?

    I want random Channel 9 posts to appear, so that when I'm not at my computer reading channel 9, I can be away from my computer reading channel 9....

    How about a screen saver that helps build the MSN search index?

    Well, that's the base screensaver template in C# Express 2005.

    How about a screen saver that runs lots of pointless calculations on static which is part of a huge global network of computers running pointless calculations on static before each screen of static is pointlessly sent off to a central server where, as it ALWAYS does, says "this is pointless static" and bins the data.

    Or Seti@Home as its also known...

    I have no need for a screenserver.

    I've got the UD client running 24/7 on all my boxes (except when I'm gaming), so there's no advantage to having a "save the world!" screensaver.

    I just tell it to turn my monitors off after 25 minutes... it saves a lot more power than using a screenserver.

    ..is cool, if pointless.

    The AOL Today Screensaver is rather nifty.
