I think that's a great idea! That's far easier to script than an API 
call, and possibly more effective.

Dont you just hate meetings? The way they drag on and you have *real* 
work to do? I will try to get to it today ;-)

BTW -- In the Win32 world I am proficient in VB and that's about it. The 
setting registry settings is going to require a compiled program, and 
I'd be happy to write it in VB (open-sourced and GPL'd of course :-D) 
unless someone would prefer a dif. language?
