Uh're making me nostalgic!  I remember a game on the Apple ][
called "Wilderness Campaign" that I used to play *all* the time.  At
certain points it would ask things like "How many food rations do you
want to eat" and stuff like that, we learned that sticking negative
numbers *gave us* things that we were trying to use or sell.

The next hack was going through the source listing for "Telengard" by
Avalon Hill games and making sure it would roll an all 18 character

Then there was the cheap attempts at creating password protected disks
ala the HELLO program and a POKE 1024,68 (or whatever) that make
CTRL-RESET reboot the machine.

Anybody remember who exactly the Beagle Bros. were?

ObWorkinOnHack:  Already stated but okay.  I'm working on a little
hack for an OS/2 system that will automatically close the "Are you
sure you want to close this session" dialog that comes up everytime
you try to close a full-screen or VIO text session.  Should be pretty
straight forward, but an awful kludge as it relies on the hard-coded
ID of the dialog stored within the OS itself.
