Backgrounds and Screen Savers

In Mac OS X you can set your screen saver as your background image. To do so, run the following command:
/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ -background

Once you close Terminal or hit Control-C then you will set the background back to what your initial background was. Hope you enjoy!

    Wait, so now when people say Wanna see my Screen Saver (referring to their Background), they might ACTUALLY be correct now?

      Yup. I think I should make a little GUI app for it…
