    Cool program I tried it out, Cool rainbow effect ! Is time an inbuilt variable like random ? Would it be possible to have only one statement (BOLD) in the middle of the page? I mean that, the statement might be recurring but would it be able to recur ONLY in the middle of the page?

    Yes, it uses your system time. I haven't found away yet but if I do I will add it here as an update.
