Group of 25 mainly low-tech screen savers for OSX, most originally written in the year 2000, this download was recompiled for Universal Binary and requires OSX 10.4 Tiger or later. Most but not all were tuned best for smallish screen resolutions, so draw slow or rough on HD 1920x1200.

The majority of the 25 savers are remakes from NEXTSTEP's "BackSpace" collection! Many display the wrong title (Vines) in their "Options..." pane and some have no or broken "Info" windows, because the author built every module using a template and didn't always resolve each wildcard.

Noteworthy modules include: "DubyaSpeeX" - over 100 quotes attributed to the alleged 43rd President of the United States, whom the popular-vote had eluded. OSX Tiger allows renaming these savers, and so "RemoveDoubt" / "RemoveAllDoubt" / "RemoveAnyDoubt" are more palatable names in my opinion...

"Coral" is also found in the MaxScreenSaver collection for OS9, and, "HextriX" is a jewel-encrusted pretty sight.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

OSX 10.4 Tiger or later.
3 (out of 25) savers didn't run on my PPC but did on my x86 : BabelBloX , Deco , Lissajous
