Many people asked me to create an ALF
Screensaver, so here it is: The name of the file is "alf-scr1.scr", and you can
download it right here.
The screensaver went online on April 12th,
During the server change in April 2004, it was offline for a while, but now
since April 14, 2004 it's online again. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Since 2000, I recieved quite a few comments that it's not easy to install.
So I added the little installing FAQ below. If you are still having problems or
troubles making the file your screensaver,
please drop me a line.

A little "How To Install A Screensaver" FAQ
Q: Where does the .scr file go?
A: The .scr file is the screen saver file. It needs to be placed in your
"Windows" directory. (usually c:\windows\system)
Q: Once the screen saver is installed, how do I find it?
A: In Windows 3.1: Go to your "Main" group and double click on "Control
Panel". Then double click on "Desktop". The screen saver section is the
third box down. In Windows 95 or NT: Click on Start, then choose
settings, then control panel. Double click on "Display" and select the
"Screen Saver" tab.
Q: How do I uninstall the screen saver?
A: Most screen saver files get installed into the "Windows" directory. (usually c:\windows\system)
Try looking for files with a .scr extension (the ALF screensaver would be like alf-scr1.scr)
in the windows directory, and you can just delete it like any other file.
Q: I am having problems downloading. What can I do?
A: It could be any one of several different issues. Sometimes the
problem is that the site where the file is located is overloaded
or temporarily offline. Sometimes there are isolated outages on the
internet that aren't the fault of the site itself, but rather a problem with
the interconnection of networks between your computer and the other
site. The best advice
is to try again later. Spurious outages are usually fixed/restored quickly.
Q: How do I download files?
A: Here are some directions for the easiest way to download files from
a web site: 1) Put your mouse cursor over the link for the file, and
press the RIGHT mouse button. That will cause a menu to pop up. 2)
Click on the "Save Target as..." option. Different web browsers might use
slightly different wording for this option -- the bottom line is to choose
the option that allows you to save that file to your hard drive (rather than
actually trying to open it right off the web). 3) A dialog box now opens
that asks you where you want the Browser to place the file that it
downloads. Make sure to pick a spot that you'll remember afterwards!
Some people recommend you to create a "Downloads" directory / folder right off the
top C:\ directory, so you'll always know where to find it. 4) Click OK and
the file will begin to download. Once it is downloaded you can either click
on it and run it directly if it's an .EXE file, or if it's a .ZIP file, unzip it.
Note: I'm planning to add more screensavers
to this site, so come back from time to time to see what's new. You can also
subscribe to the ALF newsletter to be
informed everytime a new screensaver is out.
Or in case you want to check out the
newest info about ALF in general or the latest additions to this ALF-Page,
it's recommended to regularily visit the "What's New?"-Page! :-)
