Haven't had your caffeine yet? I'm referring to the ElectroPaint screensaver.

I have had a few coffee today but I fail to see how this is related to electropaint (witch is a great screen saver and an article on how it was made would be real interesting to read)

I must confess - no bell rang for me. After all, ever since I use Octahedra as screen-saver and almost never cared of any of the others. However, checking ElectroPaint now, I can see a certain congruence, sure.

BTW, happy birthday :-)

I do see similarities in the patterns... Have to wait for the screensaver to see if it is a linear array of squares instead of cylindrical as I always thought... Neat video anyway.
