Binary Clock

This clock screensaver displays the current time in binary form in the middle of your screen, as red dots against a black background. The time in digital format is shown directly below it. Via the screensaver's settings menu, you can optionally hide the developer's logo, as well as the digital clock and the sound that is played every new hour.

It's good to have the option to disable the logo and actual time in settings. My only grind is that it doesn't support multi-monitor setups, only shows up on the main display.

Works nice, Good idea. You may hide logo with config interface.

I give 4 (but put 5) because it doesnt get larger and doesnt change default color (red).
Probably will integrate it into Windows 7 ISO.

Thanks for your work.

Really Good and you CAN turn off the logo! Go to the settings to do so.

TIX Clock? Did I get that screen saver? Doing so may rate at least three stars...!

Is there a version without a big white logo on it?
Otherwise a 5-star.

Like the concept, and nice execution! Just the logo could be a little dimmer.
