andrewz posted the coolest OS X hack to date on /www.macosxhints.com. Here it is (works in Jaguar only); Go to System Preferences, Screen Effects. Select a cool screen saver like "Flurry". Open Terminal. Paste this command as a single line, without the newline; /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background & Now, when your done gasping, go show this to your PC friends... To shut it off, enter the following in Terminal; ps -ax | grep ScreenSaver Then type in; kill **** Where **** is the number you got from the above command. To make this easier, use an alias; alias wow '/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &' Notice the single quotes. Now go to Terminal and just type; wow WOW, eh.
