pro prank: make the terminal slow over time

Ever wanted to make your co-worker go crazy?

This is an awesome prank to do when someone forgets to lock the machine (Linux/Mac, no windows support), it goes like this ->

  • open the victims ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile
  • insert the following line into it echo sleep 1 >> ~/.bashrc (or .profile)
  • you can insert a lot of spaces before and hide it under the fold
  • count how long it takes for him to find why the hell the computer is getting slower over time

Enjoy :)

(it took me a week to find when I was the victim)
