The TwinkleGL screen saver sends a shower of twinkling stars across the screen in a variety of attractive patterns.
Configuration options are available that can be used to change the screen saver into a chaotic mass of colour, a trio of comets orbiting the middle of the screen, or bizarre string-like shapes that slowly rise to the top of your monitor. Hundreds of combinations are possible -- use the Settings page to create your own!
The TwinkleGL screen saver is available to download now.

I'm always interested in hearing people's thoughts and comments on my software, any problems that were encountered, and any way in which I could make the program better. If you have any comments, please contact me and let me know.
