<WarStory>
A distant battlefield, covered in smoke, mewling quietly with the last cries of the dying...

In my ever-progressing battle to maintain control over my development machine from the IT of Sauron, I once wrote an app called Twitcher in an effort to keep the screen saver from timing out and locking the PC. I occasionally will sit and stare at the screen longer than the 10 minute timeout period. It's a PITA to have to three-finger salute, log back in, etc. Doing so invariably makes me lose my concentration. Twitcher was a little app that woke up once a minute, checked the position of the mouse, and if it hadn't moved, moved it a few pixels and then back to its original position. At the time, this was enough to defeat the screen saver. Unfortunately that stopped working a while back, and none of the other methods I've found are effective. I've seen ads for hardware dongles that emulate mice and do the same thing, so I may give that a try.

Today the field is barren, with only scrub grasses growing midst a crop of bones of the fallen.
