    Alright, it's cruel, but was pretty irresistable.

    The guy in room 1 is a quiet youth, who we (the rest of our flatmates) know for a fact has porn on his PC, downloaded during his time at University. He stays in that room all but for going to his classes.

    Just to liven things up a lil bit we sent him a letter, with a official looking university letter head, recreated using logos easily available on the Uni website, with a printed envelope, fake pre-paid post mark printed on the envelope too.

    The content of the letter warned him that Computing Services were onto him, had found that there was unauthorised material downloaded, and that he was urged to attend a meeting at the Computing Centre at 9.35 AM Friday to discuss whether or not they would allow him to keep his network connection in his room active.

    It could get interesting - we await a reaction, he has picked the post up...

    Whats the most evil prank you've played yet ?

    Done that first couple of weeks in an inital effort, but now when you knock on the door you hear a quick series of clicks on the mouse and he has to unlock the door, only to tell you he's tired, (guess what from), or ill, or short of money or whatever.

    Theres only so much effort you can make.

    They can't browse hard-drive usage, isn't allowed, only your history of web visits.

    Don't think the guy will fall for it, we couldn't put a watermark in the paper, but between us we gave it a good go at replicating letterheads.

    It could be against the Uni's use of network agreement.

    I know, but because of the risk of people possibly getting child porn, and the fact that the powers that be think that is distasteful, regardless of whether it is or not. probably means the uni thinks it's safer just to ban it. Mind you, i'm probably totally wrong here

    I would feel a bit embarassed for him if he turns up. Maybe he will wipe his computer of all porn and blame you for ruining his stash!

    He needs to get out more. When I was a fresher we went out every night until xmas, might explain why I am in so much debt now!

    We had to live with this fat American cow who was just unbearable to live with - corrected our grammar all the time, nasty eating habits, cooked disgusting smelling food (I could go on), so to stop her cooking anything else rank, we padlocked her cupboard shut (we are all trusting and don't have padlocks on cupboards) so she couldn't get in, and then hid her frying pan in the freezer. Mean I know but we really didn't like her!!!
