This is a question Petty Sabotage

I once put magnets on my brothers collection of ZX81 cassettes, so when he attempted to play them, they were full of errors and yet apparently undamaged. Can you beat that? Tell us your tales of petty sabotage.

Aaaaah Carlos. Poor bloke. He positively asked for everything we did to him on campus.

Anyone remember NetBus? Trojan-based proggy that allowed complete remote access to someone's machine, as long as you'd run the client program and disabled their virus scanner. We did all this.

Then we started uploading .wav files of screaming ghosts to the naive jittery young fella and playing them. Knowing I was tech-savvy he started talking to me on MSN, evidently very worried. So we took control of his keyboard, and began typing "carlos" into it. (We were pissed, best we could think of.) It was great getting messages from him:

"Ben, anCarlosy idea whaCarlost it is?"

We didn't know he had a big history exam the next day. He was so terrified of the 'ghosts' in his machine he refused to sleep in his room, even after turning it off (we did that for him a few times too...). He got about 3 hours sleep and flunked horrifically.
