Looking for Star wars gadget & screen saver

Hi all...

I am currently customizing my partners laptop and they happen to be a big star wars fan. I was looking for some desktop gadgets like a clock in the style of the death star or something similar. I was also looking for a star wars screen saver of some kind. I have tried a google search but to be honest I don't trust a lot of these "free screen saver" websites as I had nasty experiences with them years ago and my old machine got infected.

I did manage to find a clock widget on Yahoo but it does not work for some strange reason. Does anyone know where I could get these kinds of items or even some advice on how to make my own clock?

Thanks in advance
