I got bored, made a program that randomly moves bubbles up (bigger ones move faster) on the screen. Not much, it's just kinda pretty... Feel free to improve the code and post your own version :)/>.

I haven't tested on pocket computers, but it generates via the term size, so it should look alright.

pastebin get JCR8YTww

*for some reason, this feature of Mimic isn't working for me. Dunno if it's just me or what.

I made it more like a screensaver. Press a key to interrupt the program and it will quit. It also won't clear the screen.

This is really awesome, looks very sexy and is very memorizing. :D

Yea, this is pretty neat. You've got me thinking about making something a little like this for OneOS...

It does noticeably freeze every few seconds though, maybe from a bunch of math.random calls?

I ran this on Lua Land, didn't experience any spikes whatsoever ?

Hmm, well I was running it in an emulator. They're not super frequent, but they are there.

I've not noticed any freezing, but then I'm using Mimic, so...

The individual 'bubbles' will freeze, but there should always be several moving. I will admit, I do have a lot of math.random calls - but I don't know of any way to speed that up.

Edit: I've updated the pastebin, see if the freezing still occurs. I made the sleep manually and threw everything inside it (If you've done this, you know what I did).

I made something like this as a test. First it was rain, then I changed it to this matrix type thing. Pastebin is MJvnXB2W
