    Does anyone remember what the key-command was which made a strange animated man appear on screen and shoot the window? I seem to remember that it had been a secret key-command for many years, but perhaps it has disappeared in osx? If anyone can back-me up that they even recall this - I'd be extremely grateful and prove to my partner that I'm not making this up/gone crazy..

    I do not believe such a thing exists in Mac OS X.

    Must have been OS 9 or before.

    You're only partially crazy. ;) It had nothing to do with the OS; it was only in QuarkXPress. Don't know if later versions still have it.

    thanks eric - I am partially relieved that I am only partially crazy! - and well remembered - it was indeed Quark - some hidden key-commands would be a nice idea for OSX though!

    well after a boring day at skl I had a quick search online and there are quite a few easter eggs still in OSX!!!! most of them are terminal related but some of them are quite funny! Ill see if I can find the link later!
