Blank-it screen saver for DOS
This is the best screen saver I have ever found, for a DOS machine. I still use a DOS machine, so I can use WordPerfect 5.1 to write, using an AT-style keyboard with all function keys on the left. The BLANK-IT utility, once installed, loads whenever I turn it on, and a line in my autoexec.bat file lets me decide how long to wait before it activates. It simply turns the screen dark, and blank, until I hit the space bar. It also lets me activate the screen saver immediately, by triple-hitting the control key.
