Time Teller Screensaver – an old skool classic: Screensaver

By old-skool I mean late last century. It was 1998 when I first built the Time Teller screensaver. Updated in 2009 & 2010 (minor cosmetic changes), it’s still a favourite screensaver on my desktop and is used as my calling card – quietly installed on every PC I work on. If you see the Time Teller on a PC, chances are that I’ve been there (or they’ve been here).
Time Teller screensaver was built in Adobe Flash, which is now deprecated for web & will not display on iDevices and most other portables, but is still the standard for Windows screensavers.

  1. George, you egg, of course it’ll play. It’s more a case of “I don’t know how to make it play” isn’t it? Look, next time you’re online on your laptop, install this Chrome Extention which will let me take over your screen & show you how to make a screensaver work. And how to cut & paste while I’m at it.
    FFS, is this where my life is heading?

  2. Thanks for the HP Elitebook BIOS files, Megabyte. I’ve been looking for these for ages, glad somebody thought to re-upload them. Keep up the good work.
