	Bless you, SIR! I made sure all machines have it. One had it 
already; but I can't find a launcher for it. Is there one?

	Knowing that I have trouble recalling the name, and therefore 
will also with the command, I meant to put a launcher on the panel of 
each machine. I guess I'll have to make one -- for the first time ... -- 
unless I'm missing something.
