With most of these screensavers, if you go to the website, you can get the same screen saver for Windows 3.1, or for Windows 95/98.

Incredible Rain is a screen saver that provides about 4 interesting pictures and many other things. These images are graphics, as opposed to photos. You can change the amount of time between pictures, sound files that accompany it, and much more in settings. In this program you can control the density of the rain, the thickness of the wave and the speed of the wave. At first I set the thickness of the wave thick, and it looked horrible. The author had the circle that shows as the drop splashes bright green, and it looked funny. Then I set the thickness of the wave at zero, and the splash line faded from a thick and bright green bar to a thin dotted bright green line.

The program also comes with Saverviser, which is a separate program, [and must be registered as such] and is a screen saver and wallpaper manager. You can set up your wallpaper to change to the current screensaver, or to change at a certain time by itself.

Incredible Rain also comes with a task scheduler, and a message function, which can be accessed without turning off your screen saver, so people can leave you messages while you are away.
