  • Computer Based Practical Jokes.

    Any one got any good ones ?

    The VB script below is good for a laugh, it swaps the mouse buttons then TSR and monitors for them changing back, then swaps them again.....and again.......and again.

    Really gets on peoples nerves !! Copy text below and save as *.vbs

    'Script to constantly swap mouse buttons over. Topper 14/01/2005
    Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

    strComputer = "."

    Set ScriptMe=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=i mpersonate}!\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
    Set oSHApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Continue = "1"

    While (Continue = "1")

    strKeyPath = "Control Panel\Mouse"

    strValueName = "SwapMouseButtons"
    stValue = "1"

    ScriptMe.SetStringValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER,strKeyPath,strValueName,stValue

    oSHApp.ControlPanelItem cstr("main.cpl")
    ' alt. oShell.Run "control main.cpl"

    Do Until oShell.AppActivate ("Mouse Properties")
    Loop
    oShell.SendKeys "~"

    wscript.sleep 90000

    wend

    Really easy one is to just install the 'blue screen of death' screen saver on someone's computer. They go away, come back and think their computer is rebooting or locked up.

    Fairly harmless too :P

      Joke or not, but I have just stumbled upon this one and found the title quite funny:

          I also think that there's an issue with members from other domains that have their hair gray when added to groups in your domain.

            How can these be classed as 'issues' by Microsoft? Obviously someone is having a laugh.

              You are talking about a company who put a flight simulator into a spreadsheet. I have always wondered if the put a spreadsheet into Flight Simulator 98.

                          Funny...

                          This reminds me of the days when I used to screw with people.

                          My favorite was to:
                          1. Close all windows and go to the Desktop (hiding mouse pointer)
                          2. Press Print Screen
                          3. Paste into mspaint and save
                          3. Set as background bitmap
                          4. Edit registry to hide desktop icons:
                          Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
                          Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer \Advanced
                          Name: HideIcons
                          Type: REG_DWORD
                          Value: 0
                          5. Resize start bar to disappear
                          6. Wait for the phone call.

                          This could easily be done with a script and is a very popular way to make required visits to the good looking employees.

                            See, this is how IT admins should think, never think about the computer, think about the user (are they attractive enough to get me to lift my lazy arse from the chair and go and visit them).

                              Had to add this one coz it made me and my mate who is a VB developer piss our pants for hours:

                              In a company I used to work at (as IT Manager) my MD was having lots of problems with his NT4 Server (yes he ran Server... he liked power lol). He often would call out from his office to me and my friend that he was pissed off with getting loads of Dr Watson's during the day and was there anything we could do...

                              My friend wrote a little compiled VB app which we then 'swapped' on his machine for the Dr Watson exe in SYSTEM32...

                              The next day, when an application crashed, instead of loading the Dr Watson debugger his NT4 loaded our little application... which spawned 1000 notepad.exe processes

                              Surfice to say, he nearly crapped himself ... we died laughing!!
                              1 + 1 = 11 ... honest!
