Talking Jokes

In my office, the guys I work with and I constantly mess with each other's machines. Normally this entails something minor (ie. taking a screenshot of their desktop and using it as their wallpaper. It's funny watching them try to close a window that's not there).

Anyway, I need some new ones.

Any ideas?

When I started working at the Georgia Tech library, I never thought I would actually make friends with the students. There is a tradition here to baggy pants your friends if they are dumb enough to get up and leave their terminal unlocked. .plan files are the big one with us, but I've gotten nailed on a newsgroup too... that stings.

My current .Plan:

To have more coffee.
To Baggy Pants Mike.
To Be on the Server of the Month Calendar.
To figure out how this @#^&$#@ thing works!
To stop getting Baggy-Pantsed [Ed. Note: s#&%, got me again (grant is a
To stop getting Baggy-Pantsed by skinhead punk kids. [Ed. Note: F$&#, at
least it took three months to get hit again. (Iron Mike's a bastard too)]

To stop getting Baggy-Pantsed by skinhead punk kids that don't even
live in the same house as Horatio. It's a good thing that I haven't
taught Christina how to baggy pants anybody yet. {Ed Note: S@#$, damnit,
nearly six months this time!!!}

Recently I've played with my netadmin (such an asshole and stupido), he uses his RH laptop to connect to companies net and download music and such, so the only WM he installed was BB, but here is the deal, he left it on his desk for a couple of hours downloading some nasty movie, I created a file .xmodmap in his $HOME directory to remove Caps Lock, but here is the trick I turned on caps lock and ran xmodmap .xmodmap I also put it in .bashrc to run on startup, and locked the screen. So the actual trick is that Caps Lock stayed on all the time, no shift key works to switch to lower case letters, you should've seen him drooled enetring all the passwords he remembered to unlock the screen, all to no avail, he pushed the reset button, and I guess, engaged the lock after 2 mins inactivity to be safe next time, so doing so he put himself into an entrapment; a day after he annonced that his beloved linux laptop played evil on him, and he was forced to reinstall everything, now whenever he pisses me off, and leaves his laptop without locking for a minute, I do the same trick, and the annoncement repeats, and he still wants to figure it out all by himself (ha-ha). Hope he is not that smart to surf these forums, otherwise my ass is on fire.
