This is a simulacrum of the Microsoft screensaver of the same name, that I made for someone who wanted it. If you seek to reproduce cheesy 80s screensavers, look no further!

I've modified it to look a little more interesting by making it curve thru the center (I'm a total glutton for radial symmetry, as the next collection of movies illustrates), and by making the lines get thicker as they trail.

You can also use this script if you intend to reproduce the original - there are some commented out lines in the script which show how to do it.

This flash movie, a 838 byte file (less than 1 Kb), is a good example of the efficiency that can be achieved by using pure actionscript.
