Generally my graphics plot looks like random noise - 4/5 colours, narrow columns and varying heights.

A couple of times I noticed that the plot moved to single coloured regular width blocks and slightly varying height.

Is this normal?

Not many of us run the screen saver, or when we do (for testing purposes), we don't look at the graphics what they may represent, but more how they look like.

Which is why someone else wrote up a long time ago all the ins and outs of the screen saver. You can find that information at
