This is a fascinating screensaver even for a computer dummy like myself, a computer nerd would LOVE this! The program shows you how and what your computer is doing. Now Iídonít understand what some of this is for or means, [and no Iím not admitting just how much it is I donít understand] so bear with me. You choose to display or not packet decode, process matrix, gauges, [nope, not positive what the gauges are showing,] inbound packet matrix, outbound packet matrix, TCP socket statis, UDP socket statis, drive statis, and city names and times. You can select sn adapter to display.

You can use one of 2 backgrounds, City Lights or Blue Planet. [both are essentially black, although Blue Planet has some nebula clouds] You can change the time for each item to display in minutes and/or second and change the color of all the individual text. This evaluation copy is good for 7 days and after that must be registered.

This program is really great. Some of the information it regularly shows is something that us dummies would have trouble finding. For instance, the IP address. When I switched to DSL. I needed my IP address. I know the information is somewhere on the computer, but hehe where was a real adventure.

No matter if you are a computer dummy or a computer nerd, at least download and check out this program. You might just fall in love.
