Hello Good People,	
	For many years Apple was noted for their programers inserting comments
you could read by pressing certain combinations of keys in some OS
control windows . I do not remember anything insinuating the user was
less than worthy. Well somebody probably wrote this program for their
own gratifacation and I guess the message is part of of that. If the
price we pay for almost free software is a bit of condescention I can
live with it. I used a free Photoshop filter for many years called
sucking fish, never sure if it had some deeper meaning.

	How do you get the spell checker going in KDE/ Aspell comes to mind? I
need it badly, it is one of the few things left to customise.
