Now Screening at a Site Near You

May 24, 1999|SUSAN CARPENTER

If you're tired of flying toasters, shooting stars or morphing geometric shapes, you may want to check out a Web site for other (and free) screen-saver options (http://www.all-4-free.com/screensavers.html).

Choose from astronauts floating through space, skydivers falling to Earth or James Bond in his classic "walk on and fire sequence," used in the credits of each film. For sentimentalists, there is the Princess Diana tribute. And for cynics, there is Bill's Pie Toss (http://www.screensaver.com), an interactive screen saver that allows computer users to throw pies at a cartoon representation of Bill Gates. Some commercial offerings are listed as well (i.e., Frank and Louie, the Budweiser lizards; M&M's candy mascots; and the ever-prevalent "Star Wars").

A nice touch, in directing users to sites that offer screen savers for free, is the links, which bring you to the exact page where the screen savers are offered.
