New Site - downloadsquad.com

While browsing my usual techy blog sites I stumbled across something interesting, downloadsquad.com. This site is yet another techy blog, but it focuses on free downloads. Check it out to see some pretty nifty things! One item that caught my eye was a link to a website with free screen savers. Ok, free screen savers are exciting but ones that are open-source and use the OpenGL graphics acceleration definitely are! Just so you don't think I've become a total geek, although some would argue otherwise, here is a picture from one of the screen savers. Come on... isn't that just cool looking? There are several other screen savers on the site so just hop over to http://www.reallyslick.com/ and check them out. I know I'm definitely looking forward to downloading when I get home. Especially since over the weekend I set up my 17in LCD monitor, which means I have dual display LCD (20.1 wide screen and 17in).... WOOT! Ok, I think after that last comment I have to admit it... I am a total geek who gets excited over screen savers and dual LCD monitors =p Update: I downloaded the "hyperspace" screen saver, as shown in the picture. Wow it is GPU intensive! If you are having trouble running it make sure you have the latest driver installed for your graphics card, and if that doesn't help turn off shading. For myself I had to turn off shading and the screen saver still looks amazing. =)

So this is the screensaver you were talking about last night? The one that mesmerizes you...

Yes it is, it's amazingly cool to look at... trust me!
