Idle Merlin

Not every program has to have a purpose, and here's one that does absolutely nothing... not one useful thing. It was written to add a little entertainment to one of my network status display consoles at work, and several people have said they liked it so here it is. The program uses Microsoft Agent technology to create an animated wizard character named Merlin who wanders around the screen performing random actions. There is a configuration screen that can be used to control what parts of the screen Merlin will occupy, disable sound effects, and hide Merlin should you need to do real work.

Downloading and Installing
In addition to the program you may need to put msvbvm60.dll in your Windows system32 directory (which is probably c:\windows\system32\).
Source code is also avalible, just remember where it came from. :-)

Legal Mumbo-Jumbo
