The screensaver thread in 10F tweaked my interest. I suddenly came to wonder how many people give their monitor backlight's life expectancy a second thought. Sure the screensavers can be fun - but a black pixel is a still a lit pixel. Depending on where you read it - some monitors can be down to half strength after 5yrs, if not burnt out totally. On many laptops all you have to do is push a combo of fn + 1 other button (F6/F7 for me) to raise & lower the brightness of the backlight, and so extend it's life. So keeping it simple where do you fit in ?
