archives of this the ntb-clips list at Yahoo Groups.
But most of them would be about how to put a clip into a repetitively looping
mode while the user does something else, gathers what to input, or etc. And
then using one of the control sequences of keyboard keys (you mentioned the
shift+alt) (there are two others for a total of three available) to get the
clip to do some action, either bring up a prompt for user input or resume
processing somewhere or exit/end the clip. Outside of that, I'm not aware of
any that loop repetitively, awaiting a signal of some sort so as to launch a
2nd clip while this clip continues to run.

be anyways. I haven't seen much from him of late. Years ago he used to post
more often on this list if you, for example, search the older archives of
this list at Yahoo Groups.

can go to there and scroll down to the message history for a profile of
traffic related. It appears it has tapered off a slight bit over the last
several years. Well, there's lots of archives to search now.
Also I just ran across this, an faq by Jody:
and a frames version of the same:
