    Default Great Gag to play on your fav coworker

    This only works on some computers, not sure what the trick is(why some work and others don't). Give it a try on your own PC.

    Hold down the Control key, alt key and the down arrow key simutaneously, if it works, your screen will go blank for a sec, then reappear completely upside down. You can fix by hitting the ctr, alt and the up key.

    When you do it to someone's computer, they'll try to reboot, only to find their login page still comes up upside down.

    Had a blast on the boss with this one yesterday. He called IT, even they couldn't fix it.

    I got one for you.

    Change around a couple of the keys on the keyboard. Like the "M" and the "N". Only change a couple of groupings though.

    I had a buddy (at a GOV job) that couldn't sign in to his computer cause he kept screwing up his password. Got IT involved, same thing, I was about in tears laughing so hard.

    Question: Is this how folk cut and paste things so they read upside down? Flip the screen over, cut text, flip back and paste?

    It does not work on my PC, hence the reason for asking.

    I would have to guess this is more related to what video card and driver they have then operating system.... which is why it doesnt work for everyone.

    never heard of it and doesnt work for me.

    since I work in an IT shop of 500 peeps, I will try a few random puters tomorrow... I love a good work prank.
