HB RSS feed driven flash animation screensaver

A type of evolving screensaver
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

Ideas randomly dance sinusoidaly across the screen.

Ghostly long-dead ideas slide across the bottom , pursued by zombie-fishes.

Buns explode as firework shows...

Microsoft Mary can't say "halfbakers" properly :-) http://mysite.orange.co.uk/monojohnny
Another badly put together example to illustrate a varation of this idea [monojohnny, Jul 02 2006]

The Best Halfbakery Album in the World... The_20Best_20Halfba...rld_2e_2e_2eEver_21
Now featuring Microsoft Mary and Roman Majewski [wagster, Jul 03 2006]


       I'm bunning this as I haven't really got my head around rss yet but I've always wanted this - the mac rss screensaver doesn't really work well with the hb. I wouldn't be surprised if someone points out that this can be easily achieved already with this/that rss reader that you can download from here/there.

       Ah - slightly baked round the edges then - didn't realise there already existing RSS screensavers; this idea obviously would feature more pirates, Stirling Engines and Bacon-based products though. :)   

       I couldn't resist modifying the idea; see link for illustration.   

       Instead of a screensaver, have a speech synthesizer read out the recent HB ideas to music. :)

       [monojohnny], I salute you. That is a classic rendition of recent3 and I deeply regret giving you a bun earlier as I now cannot give you another. I shall add this to the "Best Halfbakery Album" (link).

       Smart ! Gonna download them ASAP !

       wow. "Halfbakerman" is such an excellent track.

       We have the mac rss screensaver (pointed at BBC News) on all 16 plasmas at work when they aren't doing anything else. I have on occasion pointed it at the hb, but I can only persuade it to display the idea titles. If I could get it to display the idea bodies as well it would make a lot more sense (or nonsense).
