    Im having problems using this screen-saver linked from this site

    http://www.bekindmovie.com/downloads.html

    It wouldn't download in safari, so I tried downloading it in firefox and it downloaded and said "this is a binary file." I tried adding the .saver extension onto it and putting it in the screen-savers folder, but it said it wouldn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!

    It appears to be a really old-school executable file (from my Terminal):

    file BeKindRewind_screensaver
    BeKindRewind_screensaver: header for PowerPC PEF executable

    I think that means it's for OS9!

    My mistake: PEF is also known as CFM. This is the old-school format used in OS9 but can be run on OSX. Unfortunately it only runs natively on PowerPC macs. If you could make the whole screen saver engine run in Rosetta you could use this.

    I've looked into this in the past: couldn't find a way to do it...
