10.4: See the RSS Visualizer screensaver in black
Authored by: dave@mmu on Apr 30, '05 12:53:52PM

I'd have to agree with Rob, it's a great bit of software... in about 15 mins, a complete novice like me created a custom RSS News reader screensaver that reads from the BBC News UK RSS feed.. amazing!
If anyone wants it, it's free of course and available at:

Amazing!

10.4: See the RSS Visualizer screensaver in black
Authored by: nsheldon on May 03, '05 06:48:14PM
I've created a modified version of the RSS Visualizer that not only makes the background dark but responds to audio input from a built-in mic (so it won't work on Mac minis or PowerMacs without editing). Audio input causes the background to flash like lightning. The louder the sound, the brighter (and longer) the lightning. It can be downloaded at http://www.nathansheldon.com/files/rss_visualizer_lightning.zip.

Not too shabby for 15mins of effort!
