Einstein by Mark Malamud & Susan Hautala.

Part of the More After Dark collection.

I have no idea if these calculations are correct. But I like seeing them fly by my screen in some Beautiful Mind like fit of math evisceration. I feel smarter when this screen saver kicks in. Maybe someone will walk by my screen and maybe they will think I know what I'm doing.

The neatness setting is a nice touch. The sound on the other hand did not age well and can be completely muted without detracting from the saver's effect in any way.

Also, this module seems to be based on the same code as the Simpsons "blackboard" module. The text from the later can be found in the .ad file of the former. Makes sense, I just thought that was interesting.


Late one night, in between swigs and swallows of the nectar of the gods (Yoo-hoo(tm)), I mumbled, "Who's at the blackboard?" Later, between bites and nibbles of Mallomars(tm), I muttered, "How many mistakes? A steady hand?" And look where it's got me.
