Good morning All
Firstly, thanks to Red for getting this one up and running, I am merely the mouthpiece typing out the instructions.
We are in the throes of building an AKFF screensaver, which for the technologically aware, is an RSS feed of photos that your computer can then use as your screensaver images. Red has been pretty clever, and is setting up the feed so that it automatically collects images from the Trip Reports, and includes them in the feed!
How do you go about setting this up? Windows XP users, some instructions are below. Vista instructions should be fairly similar. Any Linux and Mac users, if you figure out how to set this up, please let me know.
Firstly, you will need to download a program called "Google Screensaver" (available at http://pack.google.com/screensaver.html
). Download and install the program.
Secondly, go to your Display Properties (Start => Control Panel => Display). Select the "Screen Saver" tab.
Thirdly, in the drop down box, select "Google Screensaver"
The following screen will pop up. Tick the "Photo Feeds" box and press the "Configure" button
In the top-most field, type in http://www.akff.net/extras/Screensaver.php
, and press the "Add" button.
This will put the "AKFF Photo RSS Feed" in the list of feeds, with a ticked box next to it. Press Done to take yourself back to the Display Properties screen. Check your screensaver settings, press OK, and you're away!
This is still under development, so if you find any bugs, please let Red or myself know.
