AppStartSaver for Mac

Developer's Description

This is a simple screen saver for Mac OS X version 1.3 that launches a regular Mac application, or a Unix executable, of your choice when the screen saver starts.

I originally developed it to help automatically launch clients for the Stanford Folding@Home project, but have since found other uses for it.

What's new in version 2.0b

Recompiled as a Universal binary for Intel machines. Seems to work on quick testing, but I haven't had time to thoroughly exercise it yet.
