NeoOffice Easter Egg - Blade Runner Reference in Document Icon

If you look closely at the document icon for NeoOffice, the text on the "document" is a Blade Runner quote. To open the icon in Preview (so you can see it more clearly), go to your Applications folder, right- or control-click the NeoOffice icon, select "Show Package Contents", then browse to Contents, then Resources. Scroll down to find "sxw_sdw_doc_Option_1.icns", and double-click it. The text is still fuzzy, and some of it is obstructed by the ship icon, but you can tell that it reads:

"NeoOffice bringing the power of to Mac OS X

"NeoOffice is distributed under the GNU General Public License. For more information contact the Free Software Foundation.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.

"All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain..."

The last two paragraphs are a quote from Blade Runner. (
