pop art squares screensaver
app ::crickets:: i decided to respond in the most outrageous way possible.due to the overwhelming response in my po box from my last
an active screensaver for kindle!
so impractical, so insane, it must be art.
no command line arguments. just run:
run once to activate the screensaver.
run again to deactivate.
next i'll try soup cans.

How do I try this out exactly? Is it a script? I can't read it in notepad++, though.

no; it is not a script. it is an elf executable (like launchpad or kiterm).
the way you run it is you extract the file (sspopartsq) into a folder on you kindle.
see this post for details.
if you extracted the binary to, say, the system folder on your kindle, you would want to add a line to your launchpad ini that says:
then you just enter the hotkey sequence you associated with the application and it will run.
when you switch your kindle off or it goes to screensaver, you will see pop art squares render over whatever screensaver image you have on your kindle.
when you wake it up, the squares will disappear.
to stop this from happening, just enter the hotkey sequence again to disable the screensaver.
unless otherwise stated, applications are portrait/invert portait for kindle 3.X. (no landscape)
