A little bit of fun



This has nothing to do with science, although it is Mac related. In fact i really shouldn’t be posting about this, but what the heck, it’s so much fun I thought I’d share.

I was cleaning out my cshrc file of old cruft and came across an alias I had labelled ‘kEwL’ and now I remember why I labelled it that. I don’t at all recall where I got this from, so thanks to whomever originally pointed this out. Ok, here is what you do.

1) Set your screen saver to something cool (I use the RSS Visualizer)
2) Fire up terminal
3) Type the following:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background

Look at your Desktop.

To stop the whole thing and return your desktop to normal just stop kill the process (^C).

Ok…now back to work.
