    Hi everyone!

    Much like (I bet) most of you, I used to use FLIQLO as my screensaver of choice. Unfortunately, after installing Snow Leopard, it stopped working! Today, I decided to create my own type of FLIQLO screensaver called "FlipClock."

    Here's a screenshot:


    Here's the download link:


    Installation is simple. Open up System Preferences, go to Desktop & Screen Saver then drag the screensaver to the Preview pane. This will install it. Select it for use, and away you go!

    Please leave any advice here. I will try to integrate it as best as possible into the Screensaver.

    Not yet, but I can very easily add it if it's a feature people think they would use. I'll add it to the next version.

    Great Job!

    Wow, I've really missed my flip clock screensaver since SL broke it!

    Thanks alot!

    May i be so bold as to suggest a tweek? Why not roll over the hour dial until the 59th minute. Its a little confusing at the mo.

    Thanks for the great work getting this back on the mac.

    Since updating to SL and discovering that fliqlo was broken, I've been using Peter's FlipClock; much thanks for creating it. One problem that I've found, however - and this applies to another SL-ready clock screensaver I've used - is that soon after it starts up, the fans on my Macbook go into overdrive; this never happened with fliqlo. Now, I know less than nothing about screensavers, but perhaps it's because fliqlo only "moved" once a minute, while FlipClock is in constant motion? Perhaps there could be a tweek to make FlipClock less "active"?

    I've also just discovered this - fliqlo on Twitter - and it appears that an update to Screentime (which I assume was used to build fliqlo) may soon be coming, so perhaps an updated fliqlo is imminent.
