Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Gods for a Day

When we announced the results of our screensaver competition, we stated that Mat Bowden was to be

Reg

God for a Day. It turns out that we're going to have to get a bit more pantheistic.

We have now learned that our winning entry was the work of a team of South African likely lads, pictured above. They are (l-r): Matthew Green, Ryan Lumsden and Matthew Bowden.

These boys run a web technology company called THOS. Established in 1994, it is one the oldest web companies in South Africa, boasting Ford, Xerox and Mitsubishi among its clients.

When not slaving away for their corporate clients, they're busy running their own virtual greeting card site.

And when they're not doing that, they're out saving endangered species, helping old ladies to cross the road, battling injustice and world hunger, and being generally marvellous.

So there you have it. Gentlemen, we salute you.

Now, down to business. You can download your Windows screensaver here. Save this .exe file to disk and then use it to download the screensaver which will be saved in the "Windows" directory. You can then have a look under "display" in the control panel. And that's all there is to it. Let us know what you think.

Note

We have thoroughly tested the screensaver and checked it for viruses. Users are, however, advised to perform their own checks before running the software. We hope to have Linux and Mac versions available in the near future.
