    Saw a msg tonight (Cafe) that inquired about a Subliminal Messae program and I thought it might be fun to do one in PB. After a couple hours trying different methods, I came up with this.

    CAUTION - CAUTION - CAUTION - it steals a lot of processing time AND requires ACD (Task Mgr) to exit.
    Tip name the program "Z" to makeit easy to find.

    I suspect it could probably be improved on. {wry grin}

    Heavyweight boxer Tony Galento,
    when asked what he thought of William Shakespeare

    Neat note - I saw Tony Galento in his wrestling days when I was about 12 years old.
    Neat note 2 - Wrestling was "real" in those days too, not fake like it is today.
