In a related note, I found a program that makes DESCHALL even
less obtrusive. Instead of being minimized to the taskbar, it gets
hidden behind an icon on the system tray (where the clock is).
For people with 640x480 monitors, this can save a lot of space
on your taskbar. And it also makes it much easier to run the
program on a computer you shouldn't be - nudge nudge wink wink.
Almost invisible.

If anyone is interested, it's called HideIt, it's freeware, and they have
it
at download.com.
