jeff_bond Re:fake DOS... (313 comments)

I wrote a classic fake DOS prompt in quickbasic once, and installed it on a dim-witted colleage's computer at work.

It worked exactly as you would expect except for the fact that the 'm' and 'n' keys were reversed. To make things even more confusing, I prised the 'm' and 'n' key caps off the keyboard, and replaced them in the wrong positions, so that the keys would appear to generate the correct character.

The poor guy could never figure out why he kept typing 'wim' to start windows.
