Make Waves!

Woo hoo ... here's a gift for you folks.

Great for surf-dreaming; hours of fun:

Cool! Definitely gotta go with the 3-d view though; It's way more cool
and avoids that hypnotic or "Am I going to go into an epileptic seisure
now" type feeling you get with the 2-d view.

Later,

When the brightness is adjusted though to max all sorts
of interference waves start jumping around. Then checked
the four separate sources at once, and it hums ...

Thx sus.

Hmmm. Mama, I recently had a surf dream. It was an experience of
catching really mellow 5' waves, gliding along and
having a killer time with some aser's, namely Shaft and some guy named
Jackson.
Who's Jackson?

Anyway, that thing isn't good for surf dreaming. It might be good for
overdecorating
your house at Xmas.
Also, I couldn't watch it for 1 minute, let alone hours of fun.

You know I still love ya.
