Ambrosia recently updated the screensaver, but the links don't reflect it, and it's not immediately findable with the site's navigation... It is located here, however:

I love this screensaver. Everyone that sees my computer comments how cool it is.

One feature request: Sliders to choose the color.

I'm usually all over simplicity and would rather have something that works great than something buggy with a lot of features, but in my office a red globe would jive a lot better with the office scheme.

I don't find the offcenter annoying, although if you're going to do that, maybe introduce a slider int the options for the x position.

This is one sweet screensver.

NICE screensaver...BUT! why is it centered off to the right side of the screen?.....annoying to say the least.

Screen is @ 1280 X 1024 resolution(Native).

This wonderful screensaver ("Now your computer can dream of global thermonuclear war, even when idle") is brought to us by the good folks who brought us the even more wonderful game, Defcon, who's theme is ...."to successfully exterminate the enemy's civilian population while at the same time disabling the enemy's ability to retaliate"; truly every neo-con and aspiring neo-con's most heartfelt dream.
To those of us who love this theme, and go for it with rapturous joy, allow me me say, from the bottom of my heart, "may there be mushroom clouds galore for all of us; may our families, friends, neighborhoods, towns and cities be incinerated......real soon!"
