A semi-3D Matrix Screensaver with a different approach to the Matrix; instead of having a simple matrix of glyphs, the screensaver arranges the glyphs in streams, which fall down independently of each other and glow upon intersecting with each other. Features: Fully independent streams that render a more complex display than simple matrix-based screensavers. Ability to change the glyphs to be any color. Smooth framerate functionality that automatically adjusts the complexity of the screensaver to suit the current amount of CPU power available. This can be set to draw an infinite amount of streams, if the computer can handle that many. Subtle, specially formed statistics streams that display the current polycount and framerate of the screensaver. Glyph size can be altered from 8x8 to 64x64, and four glyph sets are included. Registered features: Option to connect the current network speed to stream glyph speed; has the effect of speeding up the screensaver in times of high network activity. Transparency, which displays the glyphs transparently over the desktop in real time. Log file showing, which monitors a log file and displays its updates to the screen as streams. Glyph color cycling over time, with customizable time settings. Reversed and upside-down mode. Ability to change the background color, and link it to the glyph color. (used when color cycling is enabled) When transparency mode is enabled, the user can modify the alpha value of the background color.
