This also works for April 24. In the beginning, during the initializations, it displays the message "Birthday() = Paul R."

Not to be a complete spoiler or anything, but if you're wondering what happens, it plays a rather alternative version of the Apogee theme. Check it out here: http://www.space-debris.net/hosted/rapgoof.wav

Here is the real story about this. When Apogee modified ID's original engine, they embedded some 2,000 lines of C into the engine that activates several tricks (monkeys throwing coconuts, different opening theme, special sound effects produced by the voices of the dev team, etc.) whenever the current date is the birthday of one of the game's developers. The sound effects added some 500K to the sound register file!
