I have (as some of you may have seen) a nice little rotating 3D cube that I made using OpenGL... I was just wondering how I could make it into a Windows Screensaver? I know that the extension is .scr, or something like that, but once I change the file extension what do I do next? Where do I place it? Meh, very confusing. Can someone help me out? - CD
Check out the 3D Cube!

Just change the extension to .scr and place it in c:\Windows
btw, why didn''t you enable depth testing?!

Excuse me, but under the GNU general public license, don''t you have to give the code out? Since you just claimed it was GNU general public license, I''d like you to send me the source.

Now there''s an interesting complication.

(IANAL) No, he doesn''t actually have to release the code. For one simple reason: He''s not actually bound by the conditions of the license. ASSUMING, that is, that he wrote the entire program, then he owns the entire copyright.

Hmmm, maybe somebody should email the FSF and ask about this one.
