    Open notepad and type:

    Start pinball.exe
    then save it at pinball.bat or pinball.cmd in your documents and run it.



    Alternatively running:

    :loop
    start notepad.exe
    goto loop
    on someone else's PC is even more amusing.

      At my old school they blocked installing programs, but they didn't block installing them to a folder in "My Documents" so we just installed Firefox there.

              Yeah they tend to put easy to guess things, I'm sure the one at my old school the password was "dell", guess what computers they were?

                haha, my school has blocked cmd, but you can run it using command.com, though they've blocked basically all our access to commands. I wanted to shutdown computers along the network for amusement..

                                Yeah, the majority of the machines were E8500s with 2GB of DDR2. Pretty sure there were a few quad cores for all the CAD stuff too.

                                Now most of the machines are Atom N270/EEE PC 1000H clients, running off 4 large VMware servers.

                                Pretty sure I'll have an i7 based system when I start sixth form
