Post via a potato

If size matters then you’d obviously rather post your status update via a watermelon.


For the more steampunk people out there, you can send your status updates via a carrier pidgeon!

Then when you’ve posted it and you’re back here, why not use this one to leave the site?  Or alternatively, use this one if you’re smarter and can spot an obvious rickroll.

The Majestic Potato Cod

A cool screensaver where a load of potato fish swim around your screen and eat each other. While you’re at it, why not also post facebook updates via a potato?

Among my favourite animators are Cyriak and Terry Gilliam.  Although I don’t follow an interest in animation at all, I occasionally get bored and end up producing oddities such as this screen saver.  I created it in a hurry and due to extreme laziness it requires .NET Framework 4, probably won’t run on old computers, and will certainly have issues with Windows 8 (let’s face it, what doesn’t have issues with Windows 8?)

Download the majestic potato cod from here.


On Windows, extract the screen saver from the downloaded zip file, right-click on the screen saver file and select “Install”. It’s really that simple… unless you use Windows 8 in which case you’ll need to sacrifice a goat, pray to Mephistopheles, fight with the kneejerk security design then eventually give up and install XP/Linux…

Although this screen saver also runs fine under WINE/Mono on modern Linux distributions, I have no idea how to package it as a Linux screen saver – if you do this then feel free to post a link or git repo in the comments section.
