    How creepy is this? It's an old AD module I found, and a pretty advanced one at that.

    You can type in whatever you want and have it write it out.

    Anything like this for OS X?

    Heh, I love it!

    I'd prefer it if it was slighly transparent so you could still see your desktop underneath, so it looked like someone had breathed condensation onto the inside of the screen.

    brilliant!

    That screensaver was amazing!! It wouldnt be as realistic on a flat screen Monitor though, but it is quite wierd. 10 out of 10 to the developer! MAKE IT FOR THE MAC THOUGH!!!!!!!

    ^ I would be so happy if I could get that.

    On a side note, what are some good screensavers? I want to get one, but can't find anything I like.

    Module is "Messages 4.0" - part of After Dark 4 (I assume).

    Does the timelapse screensaver work with isight? (i'm assuming it does...) When I test the screenaver, it says there are no pictures to show, and when I enable the screenaver, it says I have no camera turned on.

    Hmm... I do seem to remember it saying there was no camera found and I forget how I fixed that. I was in the hospital and dopped up on pain meds at the time. have you fiddled with the Options in the screensaver prefpane?

    IIRC, I just fiddled around with those settings and it eventually worked.

    Oh, ok, I thought it was some kind of setting or something. I think the IRC threw me off.
