Late birthday present

One of our users has managed to get EQ2, EverHarvest, and EverCraft working in a VMWare Virtual Machine, and has shared the instructions on how to get it working with me!

Why is this such a great birthday present? Virtual Machines are like full computers running inside your physical computer - which means it gets its own (virtual) keyboard and its own (virtual) mouse. While EverHarvest and EverCraft still require EQ2 to be the topmost window on the computer, this can be true inside the Virtual Machine instance while NOT being true on your physical computer!

This means that you can DO OTHER THINGS on your computer while you run our software! Finally! =P

I'm working on getting the instructions in a more user-friendly form before posting them - which should come in the next day or so. Just wanted to post this to get the pot stirring, so to speak... =)
