Re: Wrist Rest Gel

WD-40 is supposed to be able to remove silicone sealant. I've never tried as I suspect it leaves the sink etc unable to adhete to new silicone. It's very good at getting sticky black mastic from carpets though -- and I've done that!

Re: SuperCharge source code

Speaking as someone facinated by compilers (and emulators), I'd like to see the SuperCharge source code. Just for a bedtime read you understand! ;)

It would be interesting to see what changes were made to the inner working nd how different it is to Turbo.

Chers,

In a word, yes. But if people are like me, they forget and mess things up. ;)
