	We are using the MOBProgram patch, and I have yet to have a 
MOBProgram related crash. The patch itself was relatively stable, and it 
went in easy enough. I recommend it to anyone who wants MOBs that do more 
than just attack. 
	The one thing is to realize that the documents in the patch file 
are incorrect, and that they will cause the MOBProgram to fail. If you 
need more information, feel free to contact me.
