You frustrated Karaoke people really need another outlet. ;)

It is good that we can't kill you until TWM is at a better place 
though, so you are lucky that way. By the way, I am still having no 
luck at all getting the finder to update my custom icons...I got it so 
where it will actually replace it one time if I do a series of 
handleevents after the AE, but then not again...It's nutty. it's like I 
need the equivalent of FlushWindowBuffer for the damn file icon, but 
nothing "official" works.

I think things like this are good reasons why Apple is heading to that 
* 2.75 percent marketshare from the 2.8 they observe now. There should 
be an all-in-wonder toolbox call named simply :

FinderFlushUpdateEntireFileInfo(FSSpec/FSRef)...but sending 'fupd' 
doesn't work, and nothing else does, so again, my app will remain a 
shining example of mediocrity and a wanna-be in the basic "app-default" 
features dept. A##%@#TG.
:( :( :(

Should I just kill the file, and write a new one in it's place? Or does 
that leave danger from a botched write that wouldn't occur with a 
normal Open "O"?
