And every time I explain why I don't do some things, I wonder why
people keep telling me how I could do it anyway.
I *know* how I could make TPlink show error messages, I know all the
possible ways to do it. But as I explained: I don't want to!
(and btw: changing a byte in the PE header is one of the worst ways to
change a program, at least if you have the source to compile it
yourself).
