Xscreensaver's Juggle

I was surprized recently when I went into my office only to see my
computer running a juggling program I hadn't installed (and a cool one to
boot). I quickly realized that it must been one of the default
screensavers that comes with Red Hat 9.0. A couple minutes work on Google,
and I learned that the program is called Juggle and is by Tim Auckland and
written for the xscreensaver package. I was unaware of this juggling
program and had never seen it mentioned here in RJ (I did I quick look in
the Google archive but nothing) because it must surely be the most widely
distributed juggling program.
Some of the highlights of the program are random siteswaps, Mills Mess
tricks, bounce juggling, and smooth transitions between them. Anybody know
Tim? Was I out of the loop by not knowing of this program's existence?

Re: Xscreensaver's Juggle

Depending on what version of xlock you have, you can also do xlock -mode
juggle. If your xlock does not support it, download xlockmore...

xautolock is a great tool to if you want something that will lock your
screen after a time of inactivity.

Both are avialable for allmost any type of Unix.

Too bad the juggler doesn't move which kind of defeats the purpose of a
screen saver.

From the site:
XScreenSaver works on any computer with the X Window System. This
includes all Unix systems (Linux, BSD, etc.); and VMS. It also works on
MacOS X systems that have the X11 server installed (with some
limitations .)

Attention Windows users: There is no Windows version of xscreensaver,
and there never will be. Please stop asking. That goes double for the
``xmatrix'' mode. No. The answer is no. I don't use any Microsoft
products and neither should you.

In some ways it's a shame. I've always fancied installing it in BSOD
mode on my windows box at work.

I've never found a decent equivalent for windows either :-(

Because there is no X server for windows...except that there is.
