    Reminds me of when you could just click “Cancel” at the login screen on Windows 98 (and probably 95 as well), and Windows just accepted that and let you in.

    And now I know how my cat sent my unfinnished email once. I was very confused because I always lock my computer when I leave.

    I remember doing this on a school computer in the 90s when playing Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. If you smashed all the keys it would give up and give a passing grade with a huge word count.

    LOL, in highschool I accidentally found out you become local admin on Windows if you remove the UTP-cable at exactly the right time during the login process.

    reminds me of the fish that found a new bug in pokemon sapphire (the game was released in 2002)

    [The author of XScreenSaver warned about this bug, over 15 years ago.](https://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/toolkits.html)

    If you want a secure screen saver login prompt, use XScreenSaver. If you want a trendy one instead, use the default.
