I forget which version was having the problem. I had a screen saver
for Hardy but this morning I made it a plain blank screen. It will work.
On 8.10 on my laptop I found the screen saver that shows plugs and IC's
and switches and all that stuff moving around. Being a Ham Radio
Operator and building a lot of my stuff, that screen is interesting to
me. It has old stuff. The new stuff is too small to photograph :-)
