How I made: The Purple Screensaver

I don't really like screensavers. Especially mandatory screensavers, when every employee is expected to have the same picture on their 'workstation' display, often enforced for nebulous reasons of security but quite often in a covert (or overt) effort to crush any spark of individuality still extant in a worker drone and replace it with company-approved banality.

Happily, I don't work for a company like that.
