You can use the arrow keys to adjust the text speed as well. Up arrow speeds up, down arrow slows down, all the way to stop.

It definitely worked for me when I tried it. Something similar to the VB easter egg, but this one the music is different. Way cool.

You're right, Coredump. Microsoft did ban Easter eggs (probably due to buisiness customers complaining about lack of quality control to weed the eggs out and the fact that some eggs take a satirical view of management, such as the topless pictures of Bill Gates hidden in Microsoft Wine Guide). It's too bad. But as you can see, they keep on coming...

This is the same as the egg for Visual Basic 6 (the programming language). I had VB6 Working Model Edition and it did that. It isn't working for me, but I think it is because (1) either I have Office 2000 SR-1 or (2) I have Visual C++ 6 with Service Pack 4 recently installed. I think MS banned easter eggs.

There is a Eight Ball toolbar button image in Word 97 and 2000 identical to the one used in Microsoft Access Magic Eight Ball eggs. I am not literate with Microsoft Visual Basic, so I cannot verify the following speculation: is there a Magic Eight Ball in Visual Basic?
