in order for this little egg to work, you must have the 3D text screen saver, some older versions of win95 don't come with this screen saver

It isn't the credits at all. It's a list of volcanos from around the world being displayed in a random order.

what i'd really like to know is how the heck this was figured out. i mean come on do the developers like advertise this stuff or do people actually sit around for an hour or two to figure this out. its an okay egg but its kinda weird.

I don't know about any other words in Windows 95, but I've heard that in Windows 3.11, the word 'beer' had some effect. Anybody know better?

I tried the beer one and unfortunately it didn't work on my Windows '95. I haven't tried 3.1 though so it may work on there but I'm too lazy to go dig out an old computer and hook it all up just to see a screensaver randomly name beers.

i'm not one to sit around and type in random words to see what happens, considering volcano is random enough, but it works, and the names aren't credits, they're names of volcanos....altho some of them have become dormant and turned into mountains, it's a neat little idea to send to a teacher or geography buff.

I tried the "volcano" and after I DID NOT APPLY..it locked my system up. I could not even ctl+alt+del to reboot. Oh well :( It was kinda neat.
