apparently... when I print stuff... the printer has a .wav that says "printing started"
I usually have the headphones plugged in and off my head or on my head with music playing.
I had the plug pulled out this time.
I'm so glad no one was around to see me jump and uh.. dance around like that.

yeah.

Y'know, if you're adept enough and both machines are hooked up to a LAN, you can do that remotely. Not that I would do anything like that. Especially not to my manager. Especially not to set his error beep to the entire two-and-odd minutes of the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" song when we were in the middle of crunch mode and staying at the office all night. And, of course, if that DID happen somehow, nobody would ever start singing along with it, let alone everybody all at once.

Re:
That is PRICELESS! I LOVE IT!

I just wish I were evil enough to do it here :)

That used to be fun with the SGI boxes we had on the network. We'd send the "play all" command to the local users's sound directory, which in this case included such gems as the full "Mr. Tambourine Man" by William Shatner. What? No way to stop it? OOPS. Sorry. ::snicker::

Another favorite: take a full-sized screenshot of the user's desktop, then use it as the wallpaper and hide all the icons and watch as the double-clicking futility begins.

And of course, saran wrap over the toilet bowl, as recounted to me by, yes, my own mother. The hilarity, she is a-ensuin'...

Shatner's supposedly doing a record with Ben Folds. No, really.

"Mr. Tambourine Man"... that's beyond amusing, right into the realm of torturing-babies-with-soldering-irons, Windows-monopolizing evil. (I wonder if somewhere there's a file photo of BillG with a soldering iron? There's gotta be, in some old "Byte" article from the late seventies or something...)

The other good old trick, under Win 3.0, was pointing all of Progman's icons to point to CALC.EXE.

Ooh. Bug in Qt: Be in a multiline edit box that isn't a multiple of the cell height of its text. Select all of the last line, hit DEL or BKSP. The deleted text gets left on screen, showing in the partial line at the bottom of the box.
