Not a desperately urgent request but a quick solution would be very nice - it's about a Biorhythm program

As a gag, with several friends near by, I tried to run the
Apple ][ version of Bio Rhythm on the supposed crucifixion date of Jesus
Christ. It showed all 3 cycles peaked and then my computer froze solid.
Then, at a restaurant show in Houston, I was printing out charts for
free as a "come-on". One lady came up and asked me to run a date for
her. It came up with all three cycles low. I remarked someone had a bad
day! The lady took the chart and walked off. Her friend came over and
whispered that her son committed suicide on that day. I didn't dink with
it again, after that. Strange, you bet. :) Ric
