  3. Ghost Dance - (A Single Blade of Grass)

    Ghost Dance - (A Single Blade of Grass)
    During a scene from the Millennium episode A Single Blade Of Grass written by writing-partners Erin Maher and Kay Reindl, Floyd "Redcrow" Westerman reads a direct extract from the Messiah Letter, during a re-enactment of 'The Ghost Dance.'
    This second season episode of Millennium dealt with the 'millenniumistic' prophecy of the birth of the Fifth World and elimination of the White Man.
    The real-life background and inspiration for this episode was James Mooney, a 19th century ethnologist with the Bureau of American Ethnology, was sent to investigate the 'Ghost Dance' movement in 1891. The Ghost Dance (Nanissáanah in Native American Caddo, the traditional language of the Caddo Nation), also known as the Ghost Dance of 1890, was a new religious movement being incorporated into numerous American Indian belief systems. 
    According to the teachings of the Northern Paiute spiritual leader Wovoka, proper practice of the dance would reunite the living with spirits of the dead, bring the spirits of the dead to fight on their behalf, make the white colonists leave, and bring peace, prosperity, and unity to Indian peoples throughout the region.
    Ethnologist James Mooney obtained a copy of Wovoka's message from a Cheyenne named Black Short Nose, who had been part of a joint Cheyenne-Arapaho delegation that visited Wovoka in Nevada, in August 1891. Wovoka (also known as Jack Wilson) delivered his message orally, and it was transcribed by a member of the group who had attended Carlisle Indian School. Mooney renders the "Carlisle English" of this transcription in a more grammatical form.

The same comet appears in the night sky Frank Black is staring into, causing him to contemplate his own destiny and the relevance of the celestial body. In his monologue narrated by Lance Henriksen, protagonist Frank is considering the 'life' of a comet and its analogous relationship to our own existence.

  6. John Walkers Ouroborous Countdown Screensaver

    This Millennium screensaver was inspired by the countdown to the year 2000 (customisable!) which graces computer screens of members of the shadowy Millennium Group in Chris Carter's supernatural thriller Millennium. Within the Ouroboros is a countdown of the time remaining until the Millennium which you can define. The image shifts its position on the screen every 10 minutes to avoid burning the phosphor in any given location. This screen-saver allows you to insert the Millennium Signature Theme and it also chimes on the hour.

    Please note that some of the links in the documentation no longer exist, and if you want to add a sound file, it has to be a wav file...

    Requirements: Windows 98/98SE/XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7.

    NB. After installing, you will need to adjust the Countdown to a new date in the Settings, as the Millennium has been and gone!

    Original instructions:

    Millennium TM Screen Saver for Windows
    by John Walker (Edited by G Smith)
    ________________________________________

    The MillenniumTM screen saver was inspired by the countdown to the year 2000 which graces computer screens of members of the shadowy Millennium Group in Chris Carter's supernatural thriller Millennium, produced by FOX Broadcasting Company. Fans of the show, or folks who simply wish to lend a mysterious, apocalyptic, chiaroscuro ambience to their computer room may find this screen saver "just what they've seen in a vision". Within the ouroboros is a countdown of the time remaining until the millennium (which you can define as starting in 2000 or 2001, according to your own opinion on that momentous question). The image shifts its position on the screen every 10 minutes to avoid burning the phosphor in any given location.
    The Millennium Screen Saver is available exclusively for 32-bit Windows systems such as Windows 95 and Windows NT. If you're still running Windows 3.1, you undoubtedly have an adequate appreciation of apocalyptic events without the need for a screen saver to remind you of exogenous impending doom.
    "Millennium" and Millennium-related images and sounds are Trademarks and © Copyright 1997 FOX Broadcasting Company and must be used in a manner consistent with the FOX statement of policy regarding fan websites.


    Downloading and Installation

    After you've downloaded the program archive, extract the files it contains via Win-zip or a compatible archive extract program, then copy it to the directory where screen savers lurk on your system, as follows:
    Windows 95/98
    copy milscrsv.scr c:\windows\system\Millennium.scr
    Windows NT/2000
    copy milscrsv.scr c:\winnt\system32\Millennium.scr

    Windows XP

    For Windows XP, just download the file and unzip the millennium.scr file into the Windows/System32 folder.
    Downloading and Installing the Millennium Theme
    If you'd like the screen saver to be able to play the Millennium theme music when it starts up and when you press the Return key, you need to download an audio (.wav) file containing the theme and install it in the system directory where you copied the screen saver, Millennium.scr. The following links permit you to download the Millennium theme directly from the FOXWORLD Web site (not from this site). The theme is available in three different versions which trade off audio quality and download time; they are listed below in decreasing order of quality.
    If you simply click on these links, your browser will probably download the audio file, play it through your computer's speaker, and promptly discard it. To download the file to your computer, use your browser's "Save link as" or "Save target as" feature, which is usually accessed by clicking the right mouse button over the link (details vary from browser to browser and among different versions of a given browser--consult your browser's help information if you need assistance downloading files).

    Millennium Theme Audio Files
    mil22str.wav
    Best quality: 22 kHz stereo, 2 megabytes.
    mil11str.wav
    Medium quality: 11 kHz stereo, 1 megabyte.
    mil11mon.wav
    Low quality: 11 kHz monaural, 522 Kb.

    After downloading the theme file, copy it to the system directory where the screen saver resides (c:\windows\system for Windows 95, c:\winnt\system32 for Windows NT, c:\windows\system32 for Windows XP). The screen saver searches for theme files in decreasing order of quality--if you install more than one, the highest quality will be played. Before searching for the theme files available from FOXWORLD, the screen saver checks for the existence of a file named millenn.wav; if this file is present in the system directory, it is used as the theme. For example, you could make your own CD-quality recording off the air (for your own personal use) and place it in the system directory as millenn.wav--your recording will then be used by the screen saver. The millenn.wav file can be any audio file; if your taste runs to the absurd you could, for example, have the screen saver play the Flintstones theme instead of that from Millennium.

    Installing on Windows Vista & Windows 7

    Unzip the file MILSCRSV and place it in the C:\windows folder. It will then show up in your screensaver options under Personalise Windows. Tested okay on Vista 64-bit Home Premium and Windows 7 Home Premium edition. You can edit the settings for the screensaver from the usual Windows Control Panel. Either right click on the desktop background and click on Personalization or go to your Control Panel and then Appearence & Personalization > Personalization.


    Configuration

    After installing the screen saver, select it by using the Settings item on the Start menu to launch the Control Panel, then use the Display icon to launch the Display Properties panel or launch the Display Properties panel by right clicking on a blank area of your desktop.
    Click the Screen Saver tab and click in the Screen Saver drop-down list to display the screen savers installed. If you've copied Millennium.scr into the proper directory, "Millennium" should appear in this list; select it.
    Press the Preview button to test the screen saver.

    You'll probably want to customise the behaviour of the screen saver, particularly the occasions on which it makes noise, to those appropriate to the environment in which you're using it. Click the "Settings" button to display the screen saver's configuration dialogue, as illustrated below. Items in this dialogue are as follows:


    Startup

    These boxes control which sound, if any, the screen saver makes when it starts. If Play theme is checked, the Millennium theme song is played. This is kind of cool when you first install the screen saver, but it gets old quickly, especially if you've set the screen saver wait to a relatively short interval. Play theme is enabled only if you've downloaded an audio file for the theme and installed it as described above. If Play theme is disabled or not checked, and Chime is checked, the "drum of doom" which punctuates segments in the show sounds instead. (The drum in the screen saver sounds much better than the link above, which was converted to monaural and resampled at a lower rate in the interest of quicker downloading.) If neither box is checked, the screen saver makes no sound upon activation.


    Chime at hour

    If this box is checked, the two-beat "drum of doom" sounds every hour, on the hour.


    Chime at half hour

    Checking this box causes a single beat from the drum of doom to herald the half-hour mark.


    Chime on exit

    If checked, the drum of doom sounds when a keystroke or mouse motion causes the screen saver to terminate.
    Show date and time
    It's not authentic Millennium Group issue, but nonetheless awfully handy for a screen saver to display the date and time; it avoids "waking up" your computer just to check the time, since you can instead just glance at the screen saver display. If you check this box, the date and time appear in discreet dark blue type above the ouroboros.


    Count down to

    According to conventional wisdom and the writers of Millennium, the next millennium begins at midnight on Saturday, January 1st, A.D. 2000. But if a millennium is one thousand years, that's wrong, because there was no year zero--the year 1 B.C. was followed by the year A.D. 1, and hence at the start of year 2000, only 1999 years will have elapsed since the beginning of the Christian Era! At the end of every decade we must endure nattering back and forth between the "round number" crowd and the "year counters", but this is the big one--decade, century, and millennium all at once, so the debate will be particularly intense this time. Have it your way! If you're a member of the 2001 crowd, just change the year. You can also change the month and day, permitting the screen saver to count down to any apocalyptic event you wish: your mother-in-law's birthday, for example.
    Count today in days remaining
    If this box is checked, the current day is included in the count of days remaining before the millennium. If not checked, the count includes only complete days, starting with tomorrow.


    Test mode

    What will happen when the millennium arrives (other than all the poorly designed software on your computer thinking the year is 1900, or in some cases, 1980)? Dunno, but if you can't stand the wait to see what this screen saver will do, just check this box, click OK, then use the "Preview" button to display the screen saver. It will rush through time at an accelerated rate, showing you what to expect when "The Time Has Come". Isn't it nice to know there's at least one piece of software on your computer that doesn't contain a "year 2000 bug"?


    Image size

    By default, the ouroboros and time remaining are sized to fill about 2/3 of the shorter dimension of your monitor's screen. This is comparable to the image seen in Millennium, and small enough to shift position on the screen occasionally to avoid burning in the phosphor (the "prime directive" for a screen saver). If you prefer an image of a different size, enter the size in pixels in this box. If you set the image size larger than the smaller dimension of your display, it will be automatically limited to fit on screen.

  14. Millennium Ouroboros Screensaver

    This Millennium Screensaver was the first originally produced for Millennium Desktop UK (the previous carnation of this website). Designed using Flash, the 'Millennium Ouroboros Screensaver' features Frank Black's classic Millennium Group Computer Network Log-In Screen but with an anti-clockwise rotating Ouroboros which fades away to show the various text. The countdown is static in this version. I hope to produce a new version with adjustable countdown.

    Installation: Extract zipped file from archive and double click Setup.exe to install.

    Requirements: Suitable for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME/XP. (Currently un-tested on Windows Vista.)

    Version History:
    v1.10 Speed increased slightly. Slight graphical improvements and sound no longer muted (which prevented Music CD's from playing in background).
    v1.0 Original version.

  15. Jack Burns Rotating Ouroboros Screensaver

    Jack Burns sent this beautiful spinning Millennium Ouroboros screensaver in on 16.01.02. I particularly like this one as it depicts the Ouroboros rotating on it's vertical plane (I think I got that right!). The Ouroboros is in the form of an .avi file which you can view independently.

    Thank you Jack for sending this in.


    Requirements: Windows 98SE/Windows XP.


    Installation: The download contains all the files in one archive. It includes the original readme.txt, zipped Avi Screen Saver Player and the actual zipped Ouroboros.avi file.

    Tip: You can also view the .avi file in Windows Media Player in Full Screen Mode.

  17. Mr Lott's Screen Saver by Dark Millennium

    Another excellent, must download Millennium screensaver, this time featuring the wonderful soliloquy from Season Two's finale episode, The Time Is Now. Spoken by Mr Lott, he reveals to Frank Black that the Group is uninterested in any single individual life, but feels its responsibility lies with the whole of mankind.

    Sadly, the Dark Millennium site disappeared during 2003. It returned briefly at a different web address but has now long since disappeared for good. It is available here for posterity.


    Requirements: 800x600 minimum screensize. Windows 98/XP. (Currently untested on Windows Vista).


    Installation: Download and extract the zipped file, open it to install.

  18. Official Fox 1996 Millennium Screensaver

    This Millennium screensaver was released on the now long since disappeared 1996 official Fox Millennium website. It is now a victim of it's own age but is presented here for posterity. The screensaver flashes the words Wait, Worry and displays the Millennium logo. It also contains the terrifying screeching sound of Frank's visions.


    Requirements: Windows 95/98/98SE/WinXP* . (Incompatible with Windows Vista.)

    Installation: Download and unzip (extract the archived files).


    *Special instructions on how to get it to work on Windows XP.

    I've had a play around with it. It seems that within the zipped file if you double click on the install.exe file it will install the screensaver
    comprising of 2 files (named Install.scr and Install.exe) into your C:\Windows folder. Because Windows XP stores it's screensavers in the
    C:\Windows\System 32 folder, the Millennium screensaver will not show up in your screensaver list.

    Windows95 which was out at the time of the screensaver's release stored it's screensavers in the Windows folder and if you take a look you will see it's now in there. You can run the screensaver manually from in the C:\Windows folder but I've tried moving it into the System 32 folder (so it appears in the screensaver list) but it doesn't work.

    You can create a desktop shortcut to the screensaver and this works fine
    to manually start it in WindowsXP.

    Do this as follows:

    Open the downloaded zip file, millss95.zip.
    Double click the Install.exe file from inside the zipped archive. (extracting it first doesn't work for some reason). The message will be displayed "Screensaver Installed".
    Browse to your Windows folder and locate install.exe
    Right click on it and select Send To>Desktop (create shortcut)
    Go to your desktop and double click the shortcut and the screensaver will work.
