OK, but all the changes are just to strings?  You're not changing click 
behaviors or changing MDI apps to SDI or anything?  At least change the 
log message to reflect that you're only changing strings, then.  As Harri 
points out, changing strings is innocuous compared with what your log 
implies you might be doing.

Ideally, you'd change your log message once per "run" to describe what that 
run is doing.  Unlike Skript Kiddy's "made messages" which is just doing 
the same routine every day, your changes are different every time.
