Chris Jones, creator of Terminator has been working on a small little tool that you might like. It’s called Lifesaver. It’s a small screensaver that searches for “ubuntu” on twitter and identi.ca and then presents it on your screen all slick-like. Here’s what it looks like on my dual monitors:
Cute huh? Chris has a PPA for Karmic here. Unfortunately the version of goocanvas in Jaunty is too old to do what he needed to do to get a PPA working for Jaunty.
