How can I ´fix´ the UCS icon in AutoCad?

Setting the UCS icon to remain in a fixed location in AutoCad

Tired of the UCS icon following the origin when you zoom? Can't figure out how to make it stay in the bottom left corner? Here's how you permanently do it. Go to the support directory of whatever version of AutoCAD you are using (e.g. C:\Autocad2000\support). Open the acad2000.lsp file, scroll down to the bottom,
and enter (command "ucsicon" "n")above the princ, then save and close. Now the next time you open a drawing the UCS icon should stay put.
