Restore RSS Visualizer screen saver System 10.8
I found that the RSS Visualizer screensaver still works if you reinstall it from a copy of Lion.

In a Lion backup, if you still have one, go to:
/System/Library/Screen Savers/RSS Visualizer.qtz

Copy it to:

~/Library/Screen Savers/
on your Mountain Lion Mac.

[kirkmc adds: I haven't tried this, but there have been other submissions about copying screen savers from Lion to use in Mountain Lion. If you're missing your favorite system screen saver, and have a Lion backup, it's worth checking to see if it will work in Mountain Lion. Personally, I'm still using the Basic Black screensaver.]

One thing wich, I think, missed and should be mentioned in this post - the destination folder
~/Library/Screen Savers/
doesn't exist in M. Lion and it should be created manually.

I've test this hint and it works.

Btw, Library folder - is hidden by default, use terminal.

@kirkmc - why use a black screensaver instead of just setting the display to sleep?

I like having my (visible) screensaver pop up, and then a minute later (if I don't touch the computer) have the display sleep.
