About Random Saver:

Randomly display another screen saver. A great management training tool.

Too many screen savers? Can't decide which one to use? Too lazy to start up the ScreenSaver preferences more than once a month? Then this screen saver is for you! Simply install it, and it will magically pick another screen saver to display each time it is started.

Basically, I got tired of not having a "pick a random screen saver" option in the new screen saver application, so I wrote a screen saver to do it as the next best thing.

Details about this version:

First release. Its most obvious failing is no ability to select the set of modules to choose between.
I just spent a couple hours whipping this up, so it's pretty minimal. Most notably, there is currently no way to select the set of screen savers it will randomly pick: it just selects from amongst all the ones you have installed. Fortunately, source code is included, so if you really want to have more control...
