A Windows executable screensaver that shows a random flickering of a cascading babel of colorful ASCII characters. The opening screen allows the selection of a "Hot-Key" to Enter/Exit the program and also shows the reserved keys: <+> to speed up; and <-> to slow down the flickering ASCII characters. If any other key is hit while within the program, then an overlay appears that shows the Year, the Time, and the Countdown timer to the end of the day at midnight - all displayed in decimal, binary and hexidecimal. I wrote and used this program when Windows 98SE and 56 baud dialup modems were "state of the art". I would launch it when I left my desk at work for coffee or lunch when I had sensitive data on the screen. Since the "Hot-Key" was case sensitive and could even be set in conjunction with the function keys and/or dual keys using <ctrl> or <alt>, it was effective in keeping prying eyes blind.
