solitaire sabotage

I once read in a magazine a letter from a reader who wanted to get revenge on his boss, so he amended the Solitaire game to flash the message "Your overuse of this program has been noted".  Well, I want to do the same to a friend of mine (he don't need enemies, do he!). Can anyone help?

Most likely they created a little program, renamed the existing sol.exe to something like solx.exe (so his boss could still play after they had their fun), and made their program sol.exe.

I doubt the person actual patched into the original Solitare gane.
