    On this very laptop; hopefully it will die soon, but away from my eye line :eek:

    It's a thunderfly (well, that's what I know them as, I'm sure there is a technical name)

    Are you sure it's real?

    I'm sure I remember seeing a program that does this (displays a randomly-moving little bug creature on the screen).

    I didn't know these pesky things are called Thrips!

    It's definitely real, but has disappeared from view, hopefully deceased somewhere off screen :eek:

    Snap Robert.

    I live right next to a farmers field and this year he had corn on it again. I have 3 behind my Desktops LCD and 4 in my works laptop. These things get everywhere. I even have 1 behind my watch screen. Now I can get the one out from my watch (if I take it part) but should I dissmantle the LCD's..??
