    Please tell me someone has managed to code the background action of Time Machine as a screen saver.

    Haha that'd be cool.

    Actually people can do even more cool screensavers now with Core Animation.

    That's a great idea. I'm trying to find a similar style screensaver so that I can use it as the background wallpaper. How cool would that be!

    When I saw the default space style wallpaper for Leopard, straight away I thought how well it would be suited if it was actually animated ...

    **** son, now THAT would be mindblowingly cool!

    Say, does that animating wallpaper program - Backdrop? Something like that - work in Leopard?

    Both Backlight and Wallsaver work well, its just that resources on my PB 1.5 is limited...otherwise, I suspect that they run well on a new Intel Mac.

    Totally. I love the background picture for Time Machine. Apple really did a good job with the new background pictures this time around.
