Geartrain screensaver -- now in beta testing
This project is a screensaver for Windows. I started it in early Dec 2001, when I thought it would take me about a month to crank out... well, I was only off by a factor of 6. It's a nice screensaver at this point, and I'm going to try to sell it somehow; if that doesn't work, fine, it can keep being shareware.
Most of the time, the screensaver will draw a gear train on your screen, using realistic spur gear geometry (if not always realistic colors). However, it does keep its secrets and will reward users who watch it for long enough.
