    What a crazy egg! I've never seen, read or heard anything about this up till I googled Quark Express Alien right after it happened!

    Highlight a box and then press cmd-opt-shift and backspace....

    If you do it several times in a row (five or six, I can't remember how many exactly) a bigger, more heavily armed alien pops up and zaps the first.

    Go on, you know you want to give it a go. ;)

    In my previous job, the Quark alien was a mandatory part of the training process for all newbies. ;)

    Apparently that doesn't work in the later version although it would be highly amusing!

    In some versions (certainly circa v4/v5) if you kept some combination of CMD-ALT-SHIFT held down while choosing the "About" info box, you got a lovely* slideshow of the development team's mugshots.

    Cheers!
