Free Software Song by RMS

Recently I found the lyrics of The Free Software Song by Richard Stallman.

Before the lyrics here a short history of the song: Richard Stallman was attending some get together where everyone had to either sing or perform something. He knew his turn was coming so he quickly scribbled this song. He also thought of the tune that very moment. When he sung the song, people said it sounded like an anthem and one lady said that he should show it to Richard Stallman. He replied that he was Richard Stallman!

Join us now and share the software;
You'll be free, hackers, you'll be free.

Hoarders may get piles of money,
That is true, hackers, that is true.
But they cannot help their neighbors;
That's not good, hackers, that's not good.

When we have enough free software
At our call, hackers, at our call,
We'll throw out those dirty licenses
Ever more, hackers, ever more.

Join us now and share the software;
You'll be free, hackers, you'll be free

VB6 and IE7 problem

One may no longer be able to use the ieframe.dll when using IE7 with VB6's Web Browser Control

Here's a quick tip:
On your component selection dialog box, Point the Microsoft Internet Controls to SHDOCVW.dll instead of ieframe.dll and bingo!
