For a few days now I’ve been hacking away on a new project: Lifesaver. The idea is really simple - it’s a screensaver for GNOME that displays recent posts about Ubuntu from Twitter and Identi.ca. That’s it! The code and bugs and downloads live on Launchpad, and packages for Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) are in my PPA. Please let me know what you think! Obligatory screenshot: Lifesaver Update: I had to remove the Jaunty package from the PPA because it turns out that I’ve been using GooCanvas features that aren’t available in the Jaunty version of GooCanvas. Sorry Jaunty users, you’ll have to wait until next month when Karmic is released and you upgrade!
