PixelCity – A Beautiful Night Time Screen Saver 2


PixelCity – A Beautiful Night Time Screen Saver

I was having my usual search over the Internet when I cam across this rather cool screen saver. I don’t usually post screen saver links, I find the majority a bit tacky, however this one kind of threw me on how it works and the core code behind it (i’m a bit of a geek like that). So I downloaded, had a play around with the settings and found I had a new screen saver to add to my collection. In essence this screen saver will automatically generate a night time city scene and will fly through it as you screen saver runs. Something different to show to your friends or family.

They are similar to the blue screen of death. It is game over, restart time when youexperience them. Thankfully they don’t appear very often. As a result it is a great practical joke to have a Kernel Panic screen saver to play onunexpecting friends or work colleagues.
