This is a free screensaver package, which consists of a fader, a rain simulator with 8 different modes, a 2 color blender, crazy balls, funky clock, and a fractal painter. The clock is real time, the fader works in 4 directions, the color blender can be changed in regards to color, and has several interesting words that look like german, to describe the way in which the colors blend.

The fractal painter was my favorite, it takes a while to fill in the screen, but boy is it pretty. The only objection I had was then, line by line, the screen went to black; and it didn't;t paint the fractal again. Then the screen stays black.

There is an enhanced version available for a $9 registration fee. For more information do check out the readme file, which also reminds you where to find his web page.
