It is created but with your (and mine) script, I didnt get anything shown
in the menu.

When it's up to me, I would like to have a menu generated everytime
I open it. I found the timed_menu pluging, read through the source
but when I put it in my rc3-file, openbox hangs up.

Maybe you (Scott ;) can give a quick hint, how to set it up
in the rc3.

Thanks, Michael

 It's a book about a Spanish guy called Manual, you should read it.
