    I just can't seem to turn it off. For some reason it remains kinda funny to me.
    Anyone else?

    I haven't seen the flying toasters saver in YEARS, since I was a kid. I don't think there's a free version for OSX, otherwise i'd have it on my iBook in a heartbeat! :D

    Then you better get your heart racin':

    It has the classic mode and a pixelated mode. It's not the only one out there, either.

    EDIT: And to answer the original question, yes I'm in love with the Flying Toasters Screensaver. :)

    I know where it is out there, but not for OSX. And I think it only runs under 9.0.4 or lower, no 9.2.2 support. PM me about it.

    I downloaded it and it won't work. It says something about "You cannot use Flying Toasters screensaver on this computer"

    That'd be because the zip file that GimmeSlack12 linked was a PowerPC version. He zipped up an old version of the screensaver that's located in my post just before his:

    http://dyn.uneasysilence.com/toast/

    This is the original developer's website, and it contains a Universal version of the screensaver. EDIT: And this reminds me that I wish they'd bring back the Flying Icons screensaver, or that the developer of the remake would make a Universal version...

    Ah right, I suppose it was the PPC version that I had attached.

    Oh well.

    Guess you Intel folks will just have to suffer with your superior computers without flying toasters! I pity you all ;)

    I can't get it to work. Everytime I go the folder where it is in the screensaver preferences panel. I get " The selected folder contains no pictures"? :confused:

    EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out. Pilot error was the root problem.
