    Yeah, had it been from a real noob with very few posts, it would have gone straight into the trash.
    It would also have gone in the trash if there we're any warning signs of trouble in the executable (yes I looked at the code with a hex editor).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    Yeah, guess your right.
    Got a lot of attention though.

    >> (yes I looked at the code with a hex editor).
    What hex editor do you use? I found a very nice one, but it's 30 days are over.

    Code:
    bash: wine: command not found
    I know, I know . . . get WINE.

    I use hexedit, a Debian package. hex-<TAB> reveals that there's also something called hexeditor . . .

    It crashed the first time for me after load, before the intro screen... then it worked the second time. It's really easy, but it looks very good for its size.
