Don't you ever piss me off...

So another tech here that I am good friends with kept stealing shit from my desk. My mouse, phone headset, etc. I lost my patience when he replaced his squeaky chair with my nice one.
So I did some thinking...
He has Win7 installed. Did some googling around and typed this in command line
bcdedit /set removememory 3600
Which left him with only ~400mb of RAM

He's reinstalling Windows right now It took 10 minutes just to boot up, all eye candy is disabled and "out of memory" errors one after another

Best part is Windows still 'sees' all 4 gigs in system info but only uses ~400 if you look in task manager

To remove it use the command
bcdedit /deletevalue removememory

It applies for Vista or 7 only. If it's XP just edit boot.ini to add "/maxmem=256". Or 128 if you're really pissed off

Pretty clever, but be careful.

If he ever finds out the command you used, "bcdedit /set removememory 3600" and googles it. The very first hit he will get will take him to this thread.

May I suggest rewording it?

You are implying you are not a nerd so do you "shank" people?

If you don't sit next to this asshole drop one of these in his cube/office.

I've used it twice and both times they lost thier shit and started taking apart everything/anything electronic.

Couldn't you just send him to meatspin.com instead?

I vote for using the device santov posted

P.S. DO NOT go to that site if you know what's good for you...

The idiot doesnt even lock his PC when he leaves his desk??

If you really want to piss him of, then use his PC and his work email account to mass spam everyone with meatspin.com in his address book. He'll get fired by lunch time.
