This is just referring to the DOS command that you use to launch
heather.exe, whether from a Windows shortcut or from a command prompt in a
DOS box.  If you are running from a shortcut, you would right-click on the
shortcut and modify the 'Target' line to include the parameter(s) you want
the program to start with.  To connect to specific Thunderbolts at startup
time, change the Target line from this:

	"C:\Program Files\Heather\heather.exe"

... to one that looks like this:

	"C:\Program Files\Heather\heather.exe" /3  
	(local Thunderbolt on COM3)


	"C:\Program Files\Heather\heather.exe" /ip=ke5fx.dyndns.org:45000
	(remote Thunderbolt attached to a Heather server, version 3 only)
