In the shadow of the Space Needle.
This is weird. My G4 dual 1GHZ was left on over the weekend and when I came in to work this morning there was what looked like a little 30pixel tall moose grazing on the screen. I moved the mouse over to it and it runs off the screen. WTF?
It was pretty old looking graphics, like 8bit OS9 stuff but I'm running Tiger now.
The apps that were open were Final Cut, Extensis Suitcase, and that's it other than Finder and Dashboard.
The screen saver was turned off, but even then it was set to Flurry which ain't no moose. Anyone know where this moose looking thing came from? None of the designers have ever seen it on any of the other machines here.

You're lucky to have spotted him. In the 7 years I have been using FCP, I have never seen this mythical creature grazing on my timeline. :eek:
