Huzzah! Snow Leopard support. I missed this screensaver, so glad to have it back.

Really gives a feel of the phenomenon (from Wikipedia)

A will-o'-the-wisp or ignis fatuus (Latin, from ignis, "fire" + fatuus, "foolish"), also called will-o'-wisp, jack-o'-lantern, friar's lantern, hinkypunk, and wisp, is a ghostly light sometimes seen at night or twilight over bogs, swamps, and marshes. It resembles a flickering lamp and is sometimes said to recede if approached. Much folklore surrounds the phenomenon.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, it's incompatible with Snow Leopard. I'm missing my favourite screensaver!

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

That's the way I see my favourite screensaver.

It's nice, but it makes the fans start to blow in the MacBook Pro I have...

Very nicely done -- especially in its support for mulitple displays at different resolutions.

This may be the new screensaver for the iBook G4 that powers our media center.
