Default Been got already today..

Had an email today from Swinton bike insurance advertising the fact they now sell "Extra terrestrial encounter" insurance,

Given that this is available in America i found it amusing a uk company would bring themselves to sell it only to cash in on muppets, but I though, hey, id post the details on here as a giggle...

only to click on the link to be told April fools..

didn't find it very funny, afterall I lost loads of money from work last time I was abducted.

TF its near as dam it friday

This has got to be an April Fools joke:

Yup, was got with some sticky tape over the bottom of my mouse sensor.
Totally forgot the date, just assumed my mouse was bust.
Took a couple of restarts and plug/unplug of the mouse before I twigged.

Why haven't I done this?!
All I've done is told my mate I ran over his dog
I'm gonna get a bit more creative.

Two of the best ones for office workers, often even confuse tech support.

If someone leaves their PC unguarded hold CTRL-ALT and down or left or right arrow.
It will rotate their screen (down for upside down etc)
not so helpful on screens with GFX drivers that allow this via a GUI or the rotating screens, but will confuse the hell out of most.

The other is to set an..amusing gif or animated pic as the "Active desktop" background.

If you know someone with a multiscreen setup, go into their display properties and there's an option to move the arrangement of the screens. Make it so to get to the screen on the left, they have to go off the bottom!

You mean Ctrl-Shift (high contrast)
Combined with Ctrl-Scrl wheel you can make the screen font mahusive as well.
