Matrix screen saver

I know, "Why the hell is he posting about that?"

Well, I happen to enjoy the renditions of the matrix "code" screen savers that float around the internet. That said, There is one thing I'd like to see if anyone has ever come accross.
A matrix code SS that as the code falls, forms qoutes pulled from a text file every once in a while, then keeps going.
Several SS's while display text from a text file at the top of the screen while the code falls below, but I have yet to find one that forms that text file qoutes out of the actual falling code.

Anybody seen anything like this ever?

I wanted it to form great qoutes like:
"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."

I currently have a matrix screensaver on my computer, but there doesn't seem to have any control over presenting quotes as you specified. I'm running Ubuntu GNU/Linux on the computer, so this is part of the XScreensaver collection. So, being open source, maybe someone with a knack for it could modifiy it to do what you want without too much difficulty.

Otherwise, I have not seen anything EXACTLY as you described although it sounds like a friggin' awesome idea. I can imagine a truly groovy juxtaposition of having Nietzsche quotes coming out of the ultra-modern matrix technology. Too cool!

Peace,

Pierre

I have a matrix screen saver where you can specify the speed and density of the falling code. You can change the color too, but I wouldn't want to.
It's not the "official" screensaver, but I enjoy it much better.

Do we have anyone on the TFP who has written or modified a screensaver before?
I don't think this would be a small job, but somehow I suspect that there are those among us who would find this easy (As compared to us trying to learn anyway)

arch13, could you direct me to where I could get this screensaver? The only decent matrix screensavers I could ever find were trials, and flashed the website you had to pay or something every so often, and weren't very good. I'd like to check out the one you have. On that note, where is a website that I can find decent screensavers, without ads?

Look around for ZMatrix, it's a desktop enhancement thing that's pretty nifty. I created a presentation with that as the desktop and the class loved it.
