Dunno if this is the right place for this topic?
I know, in the post-CRT age screen savers really have no function, except perhaps to amuse the computer user. In fact they might if anything shorten the life of an LCD display. But in past ages I enjoyed them (anybody remember AfterDark?) and now I am really just looking for some kind of warning before the screen goes black. In Win XP I (being a waterworks manager <G>) enjoyed the 3D pipes. Before that I (being a mathematical physicist by training) enjoyed various versions of the Mandelbrot Set. A schoolteacher colleague, not so very long ago, had all the computers in his homeoroom set up to display Leonardo Da Vinci's inventions.
All that comes with Windows 8 seems to be "Bubbles" which after a few times around is terminally boring.
I wouldn't mind being able to port 3D pipes from Win XP to Win 8. Ideas?
