Where great old Macs live again!

With all the destructive PC viruses out there, it's nice that a Mac Virus isn't destructive but fun.

No comments? Are you people sleeping or what? Or are you just afraid of the word "Virus"

Check this out, it's cute and non-destructive and can only be done properly on a Mac.

That was cool - anyway to run it without invoking a virus?

If you're looking for a productivity killer or break, I'd simply suggest Desktop tower defense or the classic Snowcraft, I do however see the physical activity of shaking your laptop as being a good thing! Hate to see that on my CRT (oofff!).
good vid though.

It's actually not a "virus". It's a self installing "one shot" program. It doesn't replicate except by "friends".

That said, "Desktop Tower Defense" is a virus and should be eradicated from all machines.... Just as soon as I get past level 65...

I'm a big fan of KPsaver. It simulates a kernal panic on the "victims" machine as screensaver. My boss eventually figured out that something was fishy when he left me in his office for over an hour.
