 Brief
 -----

 AmiGreet greets you in the Amiga 'voice' each time you boot up. Its messages
 change according to the time of day and it now has 2 different random messages
 per hour! There are also Polish, German and Dutch versions included in this
 archive.

 Intro
 -----

 This is a little program  which I coded in Blitz, originally I wanted
 a small Arexx script which either said Good Morning, Good Afternoon,
 or Goodnight when I rebooted depending on what the time of day was.
 I tried even this simple task in Arexx but I found that Arexx didnt
 seem to handle it very well (it handled it but not like I wanted!).
 So I thought I would give it a go in Blitz. And here it is! It has
 some extra features because I tried to get the most out of using
 BlitzBasic, they are :-

 o Easy installation, Click the installer and its done!
 o Says a different message every hour of the day when you reboot
 o Uses Blitz Say and not Commodore, this SHOULD be more realistic :)
 o Can be ran simply by double clicking
 o Makes rebooting more interesting!
 o Proper Version String
 o Editable ToolTypes
 o Works on ALL versions of Workbench and Setpatch *
 o Works on ALL Amiga's *
 o No Special requirements *
 o Supports the $POO command! *³

 *  So long as the installer has been run.
 *³ Poo is a revolutionary new command like Version. Download it from AmiNet
    or the Alpha URL today!

 Foreigners!
 -----------

 Hello there! Are you from a different country to England? If so I want you
 to help me write a version of AmiGreet for your country. Ive already had
 talks with a Swedish man who wants me to make a Swedish version and I want
 people from all over the world to contact me and discuss a version for their
 country. All you would have to do is supply me with 24 different messages
 in your native language, 1 for each hour of the day ;) and Ill do the rest.
 You will be fully creditted in the documents and a new version of AmiGreet
 will be released! Et Voila ;) In particular I want to do Swedish, German,
 French, Finnish and Dutch versions of AmiGreet because Ive met some nice
 people from these  countries ;)



 A guide to making a foreign version of AmiGreet :-


                         Creating Foreign AmiGreet's!
                         ----------------------------

  follow these simple rules :-

  1. Change each of the statements below into your native language, they dont
     have to be an exact translation so long as you realise that 0 is midnight,
     1 is 1am, 2 is 2am etc.... So make sure the words relate to the time.

  2. DONT use Special characters (umlauts/accents etc..) because Blitz Basic
     cant handle them!

  3. DONT use ? ! or . because they will distort the speech. Commas (,) are OK.

  4. Type the speech how it SOUNDS not looks! To test how it sounds goto DOS
     and do this :-   SAY <text>
     PLEASE test all the speech you do because Im not foreign and I dont know
     how it should sound! ;-)).

  5. Thanks alot for this I appreciate it. tell me your eMail & name and Ill
     put you in the AmiGreet credits which can be found in the Docs.

  Please post this form back to gazy at globalnet.co.uk once you have finished
  editting it.
