    Hey all,

    I was looking for a good Mac April Fool to play on my fellow Mac users, so I downloaded this "Apple Burn Alert Notifier." It seemed like nothing happened, so I went back to work. A few minutes later, my whole screen reversed colors! Needless to say I started to panic, looking for a cure. A few minutes later, it reverted back.

    My question is, did the download do this or was this another April Fool that I inadvertently downloaded? Someone mentioned a common "black on white" April Fool but I don't know about it. Was this it?

    That's what I was going to say, unless you were there the whole time. I assume you walked away though, am I correct?

    Does someone have the ability to connect to your computer remotely. They connect, hit the key strokes once, then twice, log off your computer..

    This will only work if they have a tray loading drive...

    Copy and paste this to an Applescript, save it as an application, and add it to their startup menu items.

    Code:
    repeat
             drutil tray eject
             drutil tray close
    end repeat
