Last night after meaning only to quickly say thanks for the LizardVew BackSpace Screen Saver module for NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP, Bill Bumgarner, who originally wrote the module, asked me if I still had the source code to for his old screensaver he'd written back in '91. I quickly replied that I did & sent it to him. About 10 minutes later, he had it converted & running on Leopard. Smile It also sparked some "NeXT" twitter activity for a while last night. It was fun. If you're interested, Bill Bumgarner has posted a blog entry on his web site along w/ the converted screensaver for Leopard for download. It runs great. Smile

Thought everyone might like to know. I thought it was cool it only took him 10 minutes to get it running. Bill works @ Apple these days, but still has a NeXT cube w/ three dimension boards. I was trying to re-spark that interest in NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP. Wink

I just tried this screen saver on Mac OS X v10.6 but it doesn't seem to be working. I just get the message it won't run on this version of Mac OS X.

After that i tried the NeXTStep-Version in my virtual machine (VMWare Fusion, NS 3.3) but it runs way too fast. Any idea how i can slow this down?

Maybe someone can compile the screensaver for Mac OS X v10.6
It would be a nice one!
