    Hello,

    Good old days. Reminds me of high-school when we did all sorts of pranks, especially with girls.

    We would compile a simulation of a format c:\ with percentage bar and all in turbo pascal, then create a bat file that calls to the actual exe, but make is a file with supposedly invisible character alt + 255.bat so it doesn't show in prompt and place it in the beginning of autoexec.bat.

    Girls would panic, restaring machines without end. And smart guys would try Ctrl + Break, but then no driver would load. Hi hi hi.

    We also tried residents that create random sounds and such.

    Good old days, ah ...

    Mrk
