    Did you know that if you hit Control+Option+Command+8 you will make your display appear as a negative image (at least in 10.2.8)?
    Anyone know how long this has been a feature of the OS?
    Also, what other arcane key combinations that do equally unusual things do you know about?

    this was already mentioned in at least one other thread. It is cool though. I cant remember many of the other ones if there were any.

    It's part of OSX's options for the visually impaired. Not an arcane joke or "easter egg", but an actual option that has a purpose. It's also very cool looking.

    One of our employees accidentally hit this combination on their Mac yesterday afternoon, and we stumbled across the solution.
    I see how it could come in handy if you have a hard time with the contrast of a web site or something. I'm going to have to view a halftone as a negative and reverse the screen to see if it looks relatively normal or not.
