    I like taking a screenshot of someone's desktop (icons and all) and setting it as their wallpaper. I then of course, delete all their icons.

    Another fun one is causing chaos in Word's AutoCorrect feature.

    Lucky! At my school the admin knows little about computers and considers anything he doesnt know how to do bad.
    I.E.
    Tthey claim going into the command prompt is illegal on the grounds that it is "breaking into the system." Not only is that incorrect, (because if you press f-1 and choose boot into safe mode with command prompt it doesn't ask for a password or anything, not to mention I know 3 others ways to get into that would be a little bit more questionable :P), it doesn't even mention anything about it or something similar in the ToS.
    I then of course, delete all their icons.
    That's awesome if the person you do it to doesn't know much about computers, if they do they'll figure out real fast. Instead of deleting icons I choose the non-harmful method of simply moving all the icons off screen.

    I can imagine some applications involving cuss words...=)

    Even more fun:
    Take a screen shot
    Set as background
    Rearange Icons
    Repeat until every position is filled with an icon and make their real icons randomily assigned a location

    Sounds like a bad case of some l337 script kiddies getting ahold of subseven.
    See you in 13

    Tools->extensions

    The ones I've used the most:


    Up-Right-Down view source
    Left-Down-Right-Down-Left view frame source <<--- really good for sites that disable viewing the source and don't allow you to directly access the frame pages

    Extremely easy. Get a proper zip program. Unpack the right zip file (browser.jar). Take the file the contains the menu strings (some .dtd file) and replace the right string in there. Then pack the whole thing up again. Restart the browser and enjoy.

    Basically, you're creating a localization of the browser. To Yankee or something like that...
