what i did was slightly different than original request.

i modified my DoubleClickQuotes tool to take as a commandline option the flag: -sneakyp

when invoked with that commandline option, it will start up invisible (not in tray or taskbar)
and every hour it will print date/time and a random quote.

good for playing jokes on friends.

dont forget you can make your own quotes file to say things like "Printer Error #3423424323" if you are feeling particularly evil.

Special Thanks to jibz who figured out how to send text to the printer with winapi!

Instead of using commandline tags, can you have an options box that has those options?

its probably not worth writing an options dialog for this tiny util..

its easy to create a shortcut to launch the program in sneaky mode, just right click on the exe, select "create shortcut"
then right click on the new shortcut, click "properties", and add -sneakyp to the end of the "target" line.

This is evil and I'll probably never ever have a reason to use it.

With all that said, there's only one thing left to say... COOL!  thumbs up
