How to set your screen on fire

Screensaver sets your desktop ablaze

Laconic Software

Someone at Laconic Software must have a twisted sense of humor, which is always appreciated here at Crave. Either that or news about flaming laptops hasn't yet reached Voronezh, Russia, where the company is based.

Those are two possible explanations for the "Fantastic Flame Screensaver," which promises to set your screen ablaze (figuratively), free of charge: "Each item on your desktop--including icons and all open windows--will appear to catch on fire, glowing and emitting a smoke effect," as well as crackling and popping sound effects. All that's missing is smoke coming from your speakers.

You've got to hand it to the people at Laconic for their enthusiasm, if not their sensibilities. If flaming icons aren't enough, they add excitedly, "You can bring an awesome burning BIOHAZARD sign on your display!"
