oh its just  a way of showing program output in a memo screen that lets 
the user know somethings happening. its only meant for the testing phase 

btw - tried this and the updating only happens after the little window 
has closed rather than before the close statement. it doesnt matter that 
much but i was intested to know if it is possible to get updates during 
the running of the child window rather than its end,
