for windows and mac users to replace
anoying M$ paperclip.
Instead of getting "Clippy" popping up
saying, "You look like you're trying to
a letter", a little "Cliff Claven" head pops
up every once in a while with useless
information like where the name "Horse
Latitudes" came from or that the first
tailgate party was a game between
Princeton and Rutgers.
Either that, or some funny Cheers
reference like "You know Normie. the
Great Pyramid of Giza was actually the
world's first post office". It might actually
make a dreary day in the office a little
I know message of the day/fortune
programs already exist. The interface
