   Ahh the memories.  I did that too, or something like it.  Putzing
around in DOS 3.3 (Apple DOS 3.3, that is), disabling the warm-boot keys,
and if you didn't type in the correct password, it would reformat the
disk.  Gotta keep all my top-secret, important data safe from prying
eyes.  Believe you me, I made sure I typed the password in correctly.
   And I liked that approval... call -151 was always much more impressive

   ObHack:  I guess I'll have to owe one (unless the DOS 3.3 fooling
around counts).  Too much school work, not enuf hacking.
