As an afterthought you can, of course, start with the text invisible by
including the following in the form's onOpen event handler

         form.blink_text1.stop_blink = true
         form.blink_text1.visible = false


When the flashing text needs to be visible

         form.blink_text1.stop_blink = false

And then turn it off again once the user has woken up. :-)

         form.blink_text1.stop_blink = true
         form.blink_text1.visible = false
