Our lab's run by three of us (a guy is the "manager" over all, a woman is the "operator" [read: Vax runner], and I run the Suns), and we tend to pull practical jokes on each other every once in a while. The manager came up with a real beauty last week.
In the SHUTDOWN.COM procedures, he added a few lines to make it look like this:
blahblah perform automatic reboot? blah blah... (right after the last 'normal' question)
Will I dream? [yes] (she types yes) Great! Lord knows I love a good dream. <system comes down> backup.. <system comes back up..enter SYLOGIN.COM>
(audit messages about images coming up)
Let me fill you in on my dream! It was horrible!! I dreamt I was totally out-dated and I ran 4.3! And every night, after you all left, the Suns tormented me through the window! They're real bitches, those Suns! One even threw a Mip at me! I was so SCARED...God I'm glad you're back!
