Quartz Composer pretty neat. Some blogger was raving about FlickrFan, which lets you display images from an RSS feed as your screen saver. It sounded pretty cool, but needing a whole application seemed like overkill. I really wanted Google Photos Screensaver, but it requires Windows. I tested out Quartz Composer instead, which is like Yahoo Pipes. It lets you start from a screen saver template that's a simplified version of the "RSS Visualizer" screen saver. I got something working according to the testing interface though when I view it through Desktop & Screen Saver in System Preferences, the caption display isn't synchronized with the image.

If somebody is bored, would you mind putting in ~/Library/Screen Saver and testing it out to see if you get the same results? Try as the URL. Thanks
