Annoying little things to do to a colleagues computer...

#1
My colleague, who today has decided to attempt to be my boss, has stupidly left his computer unlocked.

So far I have: -

1) Taken a screenshot of his desktop, saved it as a jpeg and set the jpeg as his desktop background, then deleted all his icons

2) Replaced his name and lots of commonly used words in the Autocorrect options of Word with their Welsh equivalents

3) Changed his not on the internal phonebook from
Please note that i am not involved in the maintenance of xxxxx
to
Please note that i am not involved in the maintenance of xxxxx, but I am involved in Morris Dancing. I have the bells and everything. You should see me on a Saturday lunchtime in xxxxx, I really do look quite the fool.
Any further suggestions would be appreciated, as Mondays are boring, I'm a bit of a fatherless, I've been left unsupervised, and it's fun to be childish.

In Word (other word processing packages are available) change the default text colour to white.

Change the location of their My Documents folder to an empty folder

In the Autocorrect options, replace important words like his boss' name, "sir", "madam", "regards", etc with something vulgar.

The next email to the boss would read something like:

Dear Cunty McCocksmoker,

Please can I have a payrise?

Kind bukkake,

Jeff.

Not working for me... any particular screen I should have selected? Tried it with the desktop active and nothing.

I'd forgotten about the classic ctrl, alt, down. I think it depends on your graphcs card, but it's worked here. He's due back in the office at 1130hrs. I've got disco-leg in both legs, I'm that excited!

Might wanna check your contract of employment before you get sacked on the spot, mate - although I do admire the sentiment.
About a year ago I went out and left my computer unlocked. When I got in I found I'd emailed the team manager and asked if it was a good time to declare my undying love for her. I promised revenge. I've kept it non-offensive, although I may have to step in and admit it when he calls ICT support! The screen's the right way up again, but now the bloody thing's gone onto screen saver - and it's password protected. What's done is done I guess :twisted:

Wow, in all my years of daily PC use, I never knew you could do this. Awesome.

Here's another one I have found; turn num lock off and press ctrl alt and 5 (num pad) at the same time: this turns the window inside out!

How do I do that?

It doesn't work on DII if that's what you're using, nor can you switch the keyboard and mouse leads over (always an amusing one).

Bloody IT fun police! :evil:
