     This small VBscript (HTA) app is sort of like a screen saver you can tweak and play with. It's an old idea dating way back to the C64 era, sprites moving around in sine wave. I first made this with GIFs,then eventually DIVs with a wingding character in it. This lets me colour each sprite and set the size with style.FontSize (which is too slow to do in the mainloop unfortunately), but now I don't need graphics so it's standalone. Some of the text boxes use EVAL() which adds even more scope, but at the price of a big CPU hit. It runs OK on my dinosaur PC though (Pentium 3 450MHz) Save it as HTA and run it (or HTML,it isn't bothered) (This is a repost because I uploaded it to VB by mistake) Have fun! Alan.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
