Subject description: Is there a .pet for this screen saver? It's an oldie
 

Hi Woofers, Smile

I'm looking for a screensaver that shows the time in digital form bouncing around the frame. It's an old screensaver, been around for years. It's usually black and white, black screen, white letters. There is usually a choice of fonts.

Anyone know if there is a .pet available for this saver?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

That's cool puppyluvr, but, ...
1) where to set the password?
The app locks me out when it's activated!
2) how to make the font large enough to read? At least with my old eyes. Smile

Thank you

PS. Is xlock a screensaver or a screen locker? It appears to be a locker. I'm looking for an automatic screensaver like in Pupx Screen Saver.

Yeah! If I had the knowledge of the code, I'd volunteer to help.
Would be nice to have some sort of floating picture, like the time. Something elegant and simple instead of a big red X or a black screen. A floating penguin?
Thanks for all you do here on the forum, puppyluvr.
