The font of the float-past characters can now be changed. See Pie.bat for
an example. You may change the letters to anything, even Chinese characters.
The speed of the stars can now be changed with the keypad +- keys while the
stars are popped up. The speed may be changed while text is floating past.
IM now detects the trapping of int 9, and will not pop up if another program
has trapped it. This avoids IM from being locked into the stars mode.

code for this has been made more streamlined.

achieve its intented goal. Previous super-registrants will be honored, however.
The cost of basic registration has been raised to $5.00, as this makes paying
with cash more convienent.

Keyboard interrupt bug fixed. IM will now work with XTREE, and other
programs where that bug was a problem.

place. On previous versions, the star simply repeated the same trajectory
over and over.
