Very nice Bruno. It worked without a hitch on Amiga, though I'd
changed the file-name before running it. Excellent commenting, too.
Looks like it'd be very easy to figure out how to add other strips.
Only suggestion I'd make is to add an error-check to capture if
someone's not online when they run it so that it'd shut down
gracefully. Otherwise, well done.
