stumbled across this again while searching for browser extensions (wtf?). Just wondering why this is still here. It worked horribly two years ago, and the developers site is long since dead (no server at url).

I loved this program & thought it was great. It was so much better to be greated with Donald Duck than the boring Word splash image. It worked flawlessly for months!

Then... my computer started to act funny. After verifing the disk I discovered a warning that I had over 100 nested folders. For months I searched message boards, Apple Care, etc & no one knew where these 100 nested folders on my drive were from.
Finally I found it! They were in the CSI support files!!

Don't ask me how... don't ask me why. All I know is that I had a (seemingly - at least over 100) endless loop of folders within folders!

I (sadly because I liked this program)uninstalled this program via appzapper & the nested folder problem vanished & my computer started to act normal again.

I loved the program & it's execution - EXCEPT for the bug. I havne't seen any updates on this for a long time so I think development is dead. But if not PLEASE fix this problem!!

This seemed like a neat idea, being able to personalize many of the splash screens at my workstation. However, I simply wan't going to continue working with this after bareely beginning with this. First, for some reason it insists on using a .pkg installer and then doesn't bother to tell you what it's doing or where exactly it's going to put things (it said it was going to install on my HD, but it actually stuck it in apps, which it should tell you). Second, after installation and on launch, it apparently has fits over .DS_Store files that it installed itself (in App support) -- it thinks it's a plug-in. And then, when you attempt to download plug-ins to work on the programs you have, not a single one finished, giving me all sorts of error codes.
With this type of bad performance before I have even started, I get pretty paranoid.
Of course, then I find out there is no uninstall, so I have no idea where all the little parts of this program have placed itself.

This thing needs a few things... a small read me somewhere before or in the .pkg installer, an uninstall, and being able to handle stuff that has been present since OSX was born...

Sorry, I'll use the hunt for images method of changing splash screens if it so strikes me.
