The latest article there is titled The 25 Best High-Tech Pranks, and it is a killer piece. Check out the first prank:
1. The Restart Remap
We start with one sure to throw off even the most advanced Windows user. Setup is simple and you need only a few seconds alone on someone’s computer. When you get a chance, sneak over and right-click your pal’s icon to Internet Explorer or some other commonly used program. Edit the properties and change the target to: “%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00? Now, every time your buddy tries to run IE, his machine will mysteriously restart — and your laughter will instantly result.
It is the first time in a couple of years working at home on the Internet that I wish I was in the office instead 🙂 .
