What It IsThe suggestion from DoodleBug read:Remember that really fun dorky little Apple ][ program called "Drip"? It put a bunch of blocks on the screen and dripped little drops of water down the screen. Really cool low-res chunky graphics.uh... yeah.no really! I could spend hours and hours just looking at it. Borkware needs a Fine ScreenSaver to round out the collection of goodies! Do it! Now!!! Please?So, this is a screen saver version of the famous (uh) Apple ][ retro program called "Drip".
- 1.0 : it works! (April 8, 2002)
- 1.1 : Added two features. Press Tab to reset the screen, and there's an option to shade the colors to a light blue as time goes on. Thanks to Ian Kreig for both suggestions. (January 28, 2005)
