A thing i have been wondering about alot lately is the fact that making an opengl screensaver would well, fulfill a dream of mine. Now what i am really wondering is: Exactly HOW impossible is it for me as a newbeginner to this whole programming thing to make a extremely basic screensaver ? What is it that i will have to learn in order to be able to make one ? And the most important question, are there any resources available on the web (Cheap ass poor student cant afford expensive books....right now) ?

Well there is a basic screen saver template on http://fshana.tripod.com/#screensavers that should help you. You could just merely add the additional functionality you have wanted to implement. The OpenGL commands you can learn from our friend NEHE. Hope this helps.


DuhMe
I''m an idiot so you don''t have to be.
