    I think I`d hit a friend who did this to me. And I`d be right to do so.

    I`m glad they enjoyed the jest. Jokes like this could turn ugly at any given moment!

    I did a few things like this on the school computers. Took the lab teacher all day before he thought about the autoexec, 5 lines a batch commands had him going crazy XD. Also did some wicked stuff with basic and turbopascal, but the simple things seemed more funny.

    I for one miss the DOS days :(

    I`m so embarrassed that I understand this. Better yet +1000 nerd points if you know how to make an autoexec.bat on the fly.

    I took computer programing in high school on a Comadore 64. Yes, this was a good joke.

    Did he say he "zapped" several people with this? Reminds me of the Chappelle Show sketch "Zapped".

    It would be a very short program. In QBASIC (forgive my errors, it`s been 15 years since I took a class on it) it`d be something like:

    SUB Gangsta()

    Input "C:\>", $ANSWER

    IF $ANSWER = "QUIT" THEN
    END
    ELSE
    GOSUB GANGSTA()
    END IF

    "GOSUB GANGSTA()" would probably tie up system resources and crash.

    Yeah GANGSTA() woulda been a rabbit process, not that the register woulda been able to handle much back then anyway.

    Do YOU even know what you are talking about. It really is a simple line. VB is easy to learn and even easier to manipulate.

    Anyone remember hotboot.com, drain.com, or rusure.com? (Back in those days, .com was a file extension for an executable program file.)
