    I have a CaveStory one but it doesn't work.
    It's what I'd like to use though.

    I like the idea of the topic but nobody seems to be showing their screen savers so I will start. Here you can even download mine. It's the Chrono Trigger countdown timer and it actually tells the time. Enjoy! [​IMG]

    It doesn't count down, when you put it as your screen saver it reads the time on your computer and uses that. So it's basically a fancy chrono trigger clock.

    I think I've got the default ones on all of my PCs [​IMG] I never really see the screen saver because if I'm leaving my desk at home I usually just turn the monitor straight off and if it's a laptop I just close it.

    The times I do bother setting a screensaver, it's usually the Johnny Castaway screensaver by Sierra from 93 [​IMG]

    I don't understand why people would use a screensaver. It's not like you're sitting by the computer watching a screensaver, and if you're not sitting by the computer why not just turn of the monitor?

    Burn has not been a worry for some time. Power switches for me.

    Failing that if I leave the machine alone there is usually a reason (encoding video or similar) so I like being able to glance up. I have yet to get around to killing the LEDs in the fans on my case so light does not bother me.
