Here's a novel idea for a screensaver from Parent Hacks: use your My Pictures folder (or wherever you store your digital photos on your machine) as the source for your screensaver. Here's how it works with Windows XP:

- Start Menu/Control Panel/Display
- Find the Screensaver tab, and choose "My Picture Slideshow."
- By default, this points to your My Pictures folder, but you can point it anywhere you want.
