What still beats me is why every1 still wnats to cheat on minesweeper.
Just edit the damn minsweeper.ini and add ridiculous values to the
top score list. Job done every1 thinks ur a legend.
Just to be more kewl atrtib +r the file it not really a secure measure
but stops those secretaries who live on minesweeper beating ur score.
Good to know secretaries are useful for something hey?? Coz the sure
know dick about computers.
