     Screen Saver!     
New! My Digital Portal DOT net now has its own screen saver! This screen saver was originally built by me about 13 years ago in Q-Basic. I have since then reprogrammed it in .NET.

In order to run this screen saver, you must have the .NET 2.0 or higher framework installed. Please go to Windows Updates (Recommended Section) to install the framework if you do not have it currently installed.

You can download the screen saver here. To install it, simply save this file to your c:windowssystem32 directory and then choose it in your Display Properties -> Screen Saver tab. Note that this works with dual screens but as long as they are the typical setup.
Last Updated: August 10, 2008; Version: 2.0.0 - Now is able to span any number of screens and screen order no longer produces the effect of only 1 screen getting the screen saver.
