I used to be able to have a digital clock displayed as my screen-saver ... I think it was a marquis option.
Sometimes I fall asleep in front of the computer and wake up in the middle of the night ... This can be a little disorienting and I am always fumbling for my cell phone and I can't even read the display because my eyes are all blurry.
Would be so nice if I could get that big green floating digital clock back, as my screen saver.
It would also help when I'm rushing around and trying to get out of the house (condo).
Congrats for having solving your problem. Another option is to download a free (Digital or analog) clock screensaver where you can adjust the size color and shape.
If you are interested I will forward the web site to you.
Naw ... I am happy with the native 3D Text screensaver ... Without looking at the actual settings, I can tell you that I (think I) selected "seasaw" mode and slow speed at highest rez ....
... I worked pretty hard at getting the perfect shade of "Electro-Luminescent Amber", which I tweaked to (fairly) precisely emulate a Grid Compass Notebook display screen ... a wicked-cool shade of amber that is something like "school bus yellow" and something like "goldenrod", but neither ... of course ... very nice !
.... Actually, it looks a little like the lighter shades of aford10's bio-hazard avatar, in the post that preceedes this one.
