What is a Screensaver?
This "screensaver" is for entertainment purposes only and is intended for use in conjunction with powersave features of your monitor. If you have the powersave feature active on your computer and the screen blanks out after several minutes of not being used, your screen will be protected.

However, Fimbles "screensaver" itself will not save the phosphors of your screen. If your monitor does not have powersave features (i.e., the screen does not shut down after several minutes when not in use) it is advisable to use a regular screensaver with a constantly moving image in order to protect your screen.
The BBC has taken all reasonable care to ensure the BBC Fimbles Screensaver contains no errors, viruses or defects, however, the BBC does not warrant that this is the case. You are advised to ensure that you take precautions to protect your computer from virus infection. The BBC will not be liable for any loss or damage which you may suffer as a result of or connected to the use of the software.
