Evaluate the first expression using Ctrl+E. This stops the clock process we created in the last experiment and you should see that the clock stops ticking. Now the clock has actually gone but, because it was such a crude example, it doesn't repaint the screen to get rid of the last display. If you evaluate the second expression it will ask Windows to repaint the screen so you'll be back to normal.

Remember, to get back to these experiments just choose Help/First Splash in any Dolphin tool window.
