HP Printer Prank – Change the LCD Display Message

Office pranks, ah these can be quite fun. They can actually become quite competitive also, employees always trying to outdo the other. I have come across some very unique and fun pranks, but this one has to be one of my favorites.

Scott from OdeToCode.com decided to "hack" an office HP Laser Jet Printer. His prank of choice, was to change the LCD default system messages to something completely different and fun.

"I wasn’t sure if I should put this article under “Code” or “Humor”, since it contains both. Ultimately it is much funnier than technical, but full source is included for you to use in your own environment."
