Would anyone like to have a free 300 points?
I need some help on a simple April Fool's joke.
My friend had a virus on his machine that displayed a huge black circle that you couldn't minimize. I'd like to create a "program" that has this feature, which stays on a user's screen for 2 seconds, and goes away. This can be randomly shown from 1 minute to 5 minutes. I don't have a problem making this timer stuff, my question is how do I draw the circle, so it stays large on everyone screen?
How do I do it so if you're working in a window that has focus, this circle is shown on the top?
Is there any way I could embed this within a word document? If i send it out via email it would launch if they clicked on the word document? (You don't have to answer this one if it goes against your beliefs)
Last time I went to their machine and planted the .exe myself. That was fun.
I'll split up points for the help.
