    Deutz Engine Screensaver

    This may be the coolest screensaver ever.

    It shows a (rotating) 3 dimensional DOHC 4 cylinder engine being completely assembled from a bare casting, even showing all the bolts tightening. When the assembly is complete, it shows the working engine (in slow motion) but with a transparent block, it zooms in to show an individual cylinder running through all 4 strokes.

    It is absolutely amazing!! ... But unfortunately it is also huge, almost 45 Mb.

    This is a direct link http://www.xiaowu.net/down.asp?id=5557&no=1 , it automatically starts an FTP download of the rar. file, but it's slower than hell (10-15kb/sec) took me over an hour and I have cable.

    If its any help, I have kept the rar. file in my Ares shared folder, so it may be faster to retrieve it that way .... if anyone is interested.

    I extracted all the files into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and that placed it in my screensaver menu.

    Anyone know where I could upload this 45 Mb file, I think that would be the easiest.

    Ah, good idea. I'll try that out.

    EDIT: nm, I just extracted it to a folder on the desktop, ran the .exe, then the .scr. It works now.
