Kill your "friend's" computer

Copy the text from the box below and paste it into your favorite text editor (like NotePad in Windows machines) and save the file as "kill.html" (no quotes). Then, attach the file to an e-mail you send to a "friend"...

Look at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. Note that this IS fake, and it doesn't upload your hard drive to me and then delete it! :)

<21st Century update>

This page was written back when the Netscape browser held the overwhelming market share and there were a lot fewer security precautions put on HTML mail. This simply won't work on most of today's mail clients. Back in the 1990s this was a neat trick, but you probably won't get the same reaction today...
