Never used it.
But in my younger days in jr. high (were they had macs) I played around with key stroke grabbers and had lots of questionable fun. You can download a grabber for free from like tucows, or download.com
On funy prank is to take a screen shot of the desktop and then make a million HD icons, so they can not find there HD icon.
a variation of the icon gag is the one where you copy the trash icon about 40 times and then move the trash to another part of the screen, I guess in osx you could only fake the dock on maultiple sides
silly and annoying
Here is a classic gag (OS9 or earlier) that I never had the chance to to inflict on anyone.
1. Open the "Apple Menu Items" folder and locate 'Shut Down'. Yes, it's actually an app.
2. Make an alias of 'Shut Down' and then toss it into the victims 'Startup' folder.
3. Now whenever that person starts up their Mac, it immediately shuts down again.
thats a nasty one, you really have to get a startup CD to fix that, it would reaaly peeve me.
BTW Do you need to put each startup item in their own folder in X, I tried putting an alias in there and it wouldnt let me?

I haven't played around too much with the startup folder in X so I'm not sure. Speaking of startup, is there a way to have a custom startup screen in X? I've always loved creating those personal items.
Ive read about people that have don their own start up pics in X, I dont have a clue.
I added a startup item for MySql server and it made a folder in the Startupitems folder and put the alias in their, that works fine so maybe you have to make everything in subfolders. ???

Actually, you can bypass that if you hold down the keyboard combo for bringing up the extension manager and disabling that. No ned for a startup CD...
Ahhh... these bring me back. When I trained people in tech support we used to test them with stuff like this. My personal favourite is to take a screenshot of their desktop and then make it the background picture. Then move all their desktop files off their desktop to some other place. Watch them click away....
