    I was at a potential employer's location yesterday (actually, they WILL be my employer if I get my Dept. of Defense clearance [​IMG] ) and I saw one of the most incredible screensavers. It was running on a Dell laptop, and was clearly running DirectX or OpenGL.

    The whole screensaver was a nighttime scene during a lightning storm. The point-of-view is continually rotating in a counter-clockwise direction and is in the middle of what looks like a farm field. Lightning strikes are happening every second or so, but the lighting and shadow effects are clearly going through DirectX or OpenGL in that the lightning bolts completely dynamic and provide very accurate lighting in both the clouds and the surrounding landscape during each lightning strike.

    Any idea where I can get this screensaver?

    Perhaps it's one of their secret projects.

    Your tax dollars at work!

    Sweet! That's the one! I couldn't keep my eyes off the damn thing! I have never bought a screen saver in my life, but I might need to do so with this one. Thanks, Ken!
