I just wanted to chime in with my thanks - I've got several hundred screen-savers on my MacBook Pro, but this one has just shot to the top of my "Greatest Hits" batch. Thanks for sharing it with us for free! Just as a thought - it might be nice if there could be variation in the colors of the strands - rather than the whole batch shifting at once, maybe different "threads" could shift at different rates. Also, I was wondering if it would be cool to have the amplitude and frequency shift over time, perhaps randomly. Just a couple of small suggestions on an otherwise beautiful saver.
