    What screen saver do you use at work or at home.

    To start the ball rolling:

    @ work I don't bother with a screen saver except for the monitor turning off.

    @ home there's a story. I never bothered at all until I remembered a screen saver I once used in my previous job on Windows 3.11 (those were the days of DOS). I found it on the net the other day and to my delight, discovered that they had adapted it slightly to run on XP. Does anybody remember Johnny Castaway. It is a classic, better than some games.

    Generic Windows XP. Now if you want to ask what kinds of desktops I use, that's another story.

    thanks Phil, of course I have no idea that Johnny puts up a banner on New Year Day wishing you all seasons greetings :dry

    OK lets include desktops in this as well

    for me I don't bother just a blue screen

    I use Don't touch my computer for a screensaver.

    For desktops I use DigitalBlasphemy

    I currently use this one but mines red (couldn't find the red version).

    I've actually been thinking of changing to something else, as I've had the same one for ages now.
    This thread has been a good reminder.
    Hmmm decisions, which one should I choose...............

    I must admit, I dont play around with screensavers much now, certainly at work, I struggle just to lock my PC when I leave it.

    As for desktop, I found a cool, wierd transparent world kinda thing (forget where) which I totally love. At work, I use a cool one I got from the NASA site - big kinda galaxy number.

    The same goes here, I use a default windows one at home and at work. The work ones have a password timeout as I'm forever walking away and not locking PC's.

    I'm always doing the same Si, however I've got better since some of the lads find it hilarious to email the boss with your resignation if you leave your PC unlocked. It was very funny the first time it was done...... several months ago, wearing a bit thin now.

    I was a little worried when I clicked on your link, Phoenix since I'm at work but fortunately, no nude women showed up on my monitor.

    Phil, I *always* lock my computers when I step away from my desk...even for a minute or two. There's always some joker out there that will go in and mess with your PC just to be funny.
