@Antman - the previous one I made sucks. Let's kick it up a notch:

This really took a while to make, but it's 1000 times more realistic looking than the old one.
I had to like zoom to 750% and still couldn't select stuff right...

To kickstart your screensaver, download a sheep pack --==> HERE

Extract files to C:\ProgramData\ElectricSheep\content\mpeg

Try it, you'll like it...
