I'm currently in the middle of making a fairly complex piece of software (soon to be released - watch this space) and needed a little light relief. The idea of making a ball that responds to the movement of the popup window is one I've had for a while but never got round to making. The simplicity of the idea provided me

with a welcome diversion for a few hours yesterday afternoon.

Drag and or shake the popup window to see how the ball reacts.

It should work on the more recent Mac operating systems and in windows although you will need to ensure that you have the "show window contents while dragging" appearance-effects setting set to

true (i think this is the default anyway) otherwise the ball will not react until you let go of the window.
