I love the GIF. What looks to be a simple juggling loop is far more amusing.

So what's the AC/DC reference?

a near-meaningless play on the day's ramble thought... Washington DC, Washington AC/DC... I dunno, I was in a hurry...

I remember the Amiga Juggler demo, and how the first time I saw it was a down-sampled version running on a Commodore 64. Kind of like how the original Amiga 1000 bouncing ball demo was eventually replicated on the Atari 130XE. And, of course, today I can make either one of those an LJ icon if I want to.

i wonder if that was prerendered or generated on the fly?

prerendered. But on an Amiga, which was impressive enough back in the day:
Sounds like the Boing demo was prerendered too. Now I don't think that the 2600 version that predraws is cheating :-) http://www.amigau.com/aig/boingball.html
