@massius27 damn this feels familiar I might of done something similar but I can't place it lol. Getting old sucks when trying to remember crap lol

@massius27 I was in elementary when we had apple II middle and high we had dumb terminals

@Trav1sty no dictionary I got bored and physically tried by guessing. It was like my second or third guess after like password,

@vickysteeves Whar was wrong with KDE? It seems to be faster than most and you can modify almost everything to fit your work flow?

Have you tried mate?

To sum up my night life from the beginning.

elementary school nights spent starting at syntax errors from basic

middle school nights spent starting at dependency errors from gcc

high school was spent with a lot of permission denied from vicki, Laura, stephanie, heather, and Joyce.

Married life nights spent stuck in a infinite loop from work and sleep
waiting for a abort

@Trav1sty yea I got into a argument once with her around the end of the semester. I flat out told her if she really knew what she was doing she wouldn't be teaching. The next day I got into her computer and changed all grades too 100 for everyone all year and left a note saying teacher is a shitty password a shitty password for a shitty teacher. She knew it was me but couldn't prove it. Did that like 3 days before end of year after I got my grade for the final. fyi they still kept paper copies.

@ChrisWere You know talking about this you made me realize I still owe him one for getting into my site running wordpress and changing the images yo porn. Hints why I never run wordpress anymore. Still not sure how he did that one.

It might have been several years but I got a plan :rofl:

step 1 Grab hackrf and snag a good recording of a truck door unlock when he is leaving the bar.
step 2 unlock truck and fill with packing peanuts
step 3 relock door
step 4 laugh my ass off

@LibertyPaulM Back in the day meant a embarrassing email was being sent from your computer lol

@Luficer Me too if I code for me I don't have people telling me what it should and shouldn't do.

@LibertyPaulM I use to have a program for windows that would randomly remap all the keys on the keyboard. That was fun.

@joe Owch. What you could of done if it was 98 or below is renamed all the directories with a ASCII character space at the end. Like ren Windows WindowAlt^255 so they could see the folder but when they cd windows it would not go as it has a ASCII space and unless they knew to type it they would not be able to access it. It's completely madding for people lol Its right there but can get into it.

@kungtotte oh flipping there screen but flipping the background to the correct orientation is fun too. sit back and watch the head scratching

@ChrisWere The bastard did something similar to me first but had my desktop reboot at random times haha I found it pretty quick but I had to get him back but I went for a more low key approach lol

@mig5 I caught my roommate GF at the time trying to cheat on him. I found her on a singles site. So I setup her computer only on the firewall to redirect to the proxy. This was the days before everything had SSL. I had the proxy redirect her to a site when she loaded the singles website saying busted with a gif of a guy wagging his finger and put in there to come see me right now.

@ChrisWere so my friend and I would spend the day hacking each other. I got into his mail server once and hid a script. between 6am and 6pm it would random time shutdown mail for t=1 - 3 minutes and start back up. Quick enough to be up by the time he logged in. then from 6pm to 6am random times t=1 - 20 minutes. LOL It almost drove him mad chasing it down. He was my roommate so I got to watch the descent into madness lol. It was down just long enough for people to call him and complain.

What kind of IT pranks have you played on people??

I used a kinda IP spoof using a proxy (still in kali don't remember name ATM)to gain access to a buddies home router. I changed the DNS to point to one I setup which redirected every common site to a porn site.

Years ago I slipped on my friends GF machine running win98 and changed the shell from explorer to progman and told her 98 sucks I reinstalled win 3.1 I swear I think smoke was coming out her ears as she thought I really did it lol.

@l10nn So they can send a restart application command hmm reminds me of a script I wrote to mess with a friend. We would spend the day hacking each other. I got into his mail server once and hid a script. between 6am and 6pm it would random time shutdown mail for t=1 - 3 minutes and start back up. Quick enough to be up by the time he logged in. then from 6pm to 6am random times t=1 - 20 minutes. LOL It almost drove him mad chasing it down. He was my roommate so I got to watch the descent
