xscreensaver

I think the fact that I just can't bring myself to care about working on any of the remaining things on the xscreensaver todo list probably means that I ought to just release it. Though brad says I should just leave it in beta forever, since that's the Web Two Point Oh Way.

If one of you massochists out there wanted to download a copy of xlockmore and see if there are any interesting changes in any of the savers that exist in both, that'd be nice. (This would also be one of those tasks that I will never, ever get around to.)

    Would that make it Web Two Point Oh Well?

    • crystal -- doesn't draw grid.

    Hmm. It doesn't draw the grid much of the time on X11 either, because it always chooses random settings. Maybe you'll jump ahead of me on the clue trail if I ask how exactly one turns off fullrandom? Same problem in ant, drift, hopalong, mountain (and then how do you turn on wireframe?), penrose (sort of fixed with #if 0), and polyominoes.

      One doesn't turn off fullrandom. But it never draws the grid, because it would need to re-draw it every frame to work on OSX, and it only draws it once, at startup. But the "crystal" code is crappy enough that figureing out how to make that change wore out my patience.

    Fuck that, Flickr one upped 'em all and went GAMMA. Biotch.
