I am hoping someone can point me in the direction of a screen saver or desktop pic that I could just call up quickly if anyone approaches my desk. Just to make it look as though i'm doing something useful instead of reading pprune!

You may be surprised to learn that you're not alone in wanting this facility ;) Try this anti boss screen saver here (http://www.softsland.com/Anti_Boss_Key_Hide_windows_quickly.html).

Tell them it's research - you found a reference to your company on PPRuNe and were checking it out.

Variant I
Open the browser and a program which stands for serious work e.g. - a text editor?!

Open PPRUNE

When boss drops in choose ALT + TAB and switch to the work.

Variant II
Log into PPRUNE using the function "remember me"

When boss comes in push ALT + F4 to end the browser session.
When boss away reopen browser...

If still not happy pay me and I design you a screen saver :}

I used to use OS2 and it had a feature where you could capture a screen and use that for a screen saver. We had this one guy that would edit a program on the mainframe, capture it, make it his screen saver and then **** off fo a couple of hours.

For some reason OS2 was never a great success. It also had a great feature where you could design and build an icon. That was cool.


Failing that just use WindowKey + M :8

We have one chap who has a screen saver that consists of a completely blue screen with some text in the top left corner that says "Fatal Error. Contact your Administrator or hit any key to reformat drive C:"

You can sit and do nothing for hours with a screensaver like that. There's not many people brave enough to hit a key to see what happens...

I too was an OS/2 fan. Somewhere, I've still got a copy of Ver 4 'WARP'. I even used to use the voice recognition software (and this was before Win95 even). Never crashed and never had a virus Widows needed a re-boot at least once/day.

I believe that it failed because IBM was geared to dealing with corporate customers and did not have the skills or infrastructure to deal with individual consumers. Without the 'home' market, OS/2 lost out to Windows. OS/2 is still used within IBM for service processors etc.
