David Knapman,

The simple answer is you print the 'Prompt' at a random location on an 'empty' screen.

This forces the user to scan the screen for the prompt and they are more likely to read it.

If you really want to force the user to 'pay attention' you could also use a different font and/or colour for each new 'prompt'.

Simples !!! :)
