When I was in Junior high, the computer lab was filled with Mac Classics.
Each Mac had FoolProof installed on it, which I believe is the same sort of
idiotware. I was pretty proud of myself for figuring out that I could use
ResEdit to change FoolProof's file type string from INIT to TINI so
FoolProof wouldn't load. Alas, it did not work out as a demonstration to
the school of the software's uselessness; I told the wrong person and he
started deleting things he shouldn't have...
