Unlikely that anyone else could be interested in something like this, but I've been looking for a while for a screensaver like the stock marquee one but that would pick a random text (the longer, the better) from a list that I can configure.

This could be useful for learning vocabulary, famous quotes, and other things.

Anyone ever noticed such a screensaver?
Everything I've seen is much more visually oriented (esp. animated images).

Don't know about a multi-monitor setup (I am using Synergy (a software KVM without the V)), but I really love MotionPicture screensaver because it can zoom, pan, fade and play music for you.

MotionPicture Screensaver looks neat.. may have to think about adding some of those features to my own new Multi Photo Quotes screensaver.
