I've looked over the keyboard reactions and this is what I found... W: Turn Wireframe Graphics On/Off O: "And the crowd goes wild!" P: "Pause" the action. Press again to "resume" G: Ue a "Gun" to shoot random letters in the credits H: Pulsating Credits On/Off C: "Oh Canada!" music V: The ball zooms in to become the background. B: The ball pulsates on/off. N: "Wa-wa-wa-waah!" sound M: Music On/Off; The regular credits music. Space: Skip a credit. Esc: Leave credits.

Here's a little side easter egg... first you have to download Resource Hacker from here: http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker aggie... you know how you got an error in wkwtesup.dll? That file has something to do with the easter egg. In fact, it is the egg. So open up Resource Hacker and open this file: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Works\WkWteSup.dll" In the left-hand pane of the screen, there will be a few resources. The ones of particular interest are "MIDI," "NAMELIST," and "Bitmap." Expand MIDI and one of its subresources and select 1033. Click "Play MIDI." You'll hear music or sound effects from the egg. I can't figure out how to view the NAMELIST\131\1033 resource in plain English, it appears to be encrypted (anybody know what it's encrypted in? I tried ROT13 and it didn't work.) I believe that this is the complete list of names and words that the egg uses. The most interesting is the Bitmap resource. There are a few more pictures in here than they showed you in the egg. It seems that Microsoft programmers really do get bored woith their job.
