A light practical joke around the workplace

8 posts in this topic

using xp and IE6 (maybe IE7) it is possible to hide any file on a desktop and open it via the IE address bar.

Ex . . . I rename a working outlook shortcut to www.yahoo.com, then I hide the shortcut using hidden under general properties.

If the user types www.yahoo.com in their IE addressbar, Outlook will launch

I have been working on a random insult generator based on the excel proof of concept from www.glynnconsulting.co.uk

I have taken it about as far as I care to as it now serves my purposes :)

Code below. Besure to place all three text files, and and the compiled exe on the desktop then hide them. Text file names are important. Add your own insults as you see fit

Currently there are about 2.3 million possibilities. :)

For spacing I am using Alt+0160 to center the insult

CODE
#include <GuiConstants.au3>

#include <file.au3>

#include <IE.au3>

Dim $aRecords, $bRecords, $cRecords

If Not _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\A.txt", $aRecords) Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", " Error reading A.txt log to Array error:" & @error)

Exit

EndIf

If Not _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\B.txt", $bRecords) Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", " Error reading B.txt log to Array error:" & @error)

Exit

EndIf

If Not _FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\C.txt", $cRecords) Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", " Error reading C.txt log to Array error:" & @error)

Exit

EndIf

$sText = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\", "Window Title")

$oIE = _IEAttach($sText, "WindowTitle")

$MyMessage = $aRecords[Random(1, UBound($aRecords) - 1, 1) ] & $bRecords[Random(1, UBound($bRecords) - 1, 1) ] & $cRecords[Random(1, UBound($cRecords) - 1, 1) ]

$sPage = "<HTML><HEAD></HEAD><BODY>" & "                                                                                               

          " & $MyMessage & "</BODY></HTML>"

_IEDocWriteHTML($oIE, $sPage)

sleep (1000)

_IENavigate($oIE, "http:\\www.google.com")

Confirmed on Internet Explorer 7. Neat script :)

Lol I never thought IE browsing to a file in place of a webpage... (I use firefox, and it doesn't do that). Might come in useful somewhere... hehe :).

So I created the three txt files on the desktop and made them hidden.

Then I copied your code into autoit and tried to compile but got this error:

C:\Documents and Settings\u452514\Desktop\testInsult.au3(27,40) : ERROR: syntax error (illegal character)

$sPage = "<HTML><HEAD></HEAD><BODY>" & "

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

So I changed the line to read:

$sPage = "<HTML><HEAD></HEAD><BODY>" & $MyMessage & "</BODY></HTML>"

I then compiled on the desktop as "www.yahoo.com" and made it hidden

I opened a webpage and typed www.yahoo.com in the address bar.

The autoit file executes and then exits without doing anything (that I can see)

Anything I'm forgetting?

Kinda odd about the illegal character thing. (I am guessing it changed the format when posting here.) It compiles just fine for me. I have added a file for you to compile here.

Please try the following.

* Unhide everyting.

* Besure that you have text files named A, B, and C on the desktop

* Use my code and name it as named currently

* Open a single IE

* Type www.yahoo.com -not HTTP:\\www.yahoo.com

when you get all this to work do the following

* Alter the script for your address needed. -replace yahoo with google or whatever in the script. -leave the http in the script though

* Compile the script.

* Copy it and name one www.youraddress.com, one youraddress.com and one youraddress -covers however they type it in ie

* verify they still work

* Hide all SIX files

:) that's it

www.google.com.au3
