Windows PC users just LOVE to forward executable (.EXE) files to everyone in their address book. These .EXE files—which do not work on Macintoshes—are usually no more than sex I.Q. tests and other diversions. Next time a PC user causes you to waste 20 minutes of your day waiting for a 3 MB file to download on your 56K modem, don't get mad . . . get even! Use Stuffit Deluxe to send them a Self-Extracting Archive (.sea) encoded in hexidecimal (.hqx). To be fair, make sure the compressed file size is at least as big as the one they sent you.
