LOL. Been there, done that! Of course, for me, that's the challenge.
How boring things would be if computers "just worked", like a TV or a
microwave. A new one might be fun for a half hour or so. =8^)

Let's see... In the sources, there's a couple MS specific files,
README.windows.in (which appears to be pulled in by one of the make
files, and probably spit out during the run), and README.mingw, somewhat
more detailed compiling instructions, referred to in the first file.
I had seen those but never read them, so didn't know what they contained.
It looks to be all compiling info, so if you are downloading a precompiled
binary, it may be omitted as of little interest.

I do think you need a password to add to it, but if you ask here, I'm sure
Darren will be happy to mail you one. He asked me to take a look around
and see if there was anything that might stimulate me to add something,
and it has been on my todo list, but it hasn't gotten done, unfortunately.
Still, it should be worth something, particularly for those who haven't
been hanging out here for several months and who have therefore seen many
"FAQs" and their answers several times.
