I have to admit that I kinda of like the idea of a prank design pattern...
I seem to recall upgrading from Win3.1 to 95 back in the day, and it displayed a message saying something along the lines of "Warning: About to format hard disk. Press Cancel to abort", and the cancel button kept moving away from the cursor as you moved towards clicking it.
My dad nearly had a brain aneurysm
Yeah I thought it was pretty funny. Much better than the typical "close this if you hate saving money" copy…
I don't see it :(
Looks like they removed it.
Can someone screengrab this and show it to the rest of the world? :)
Genius. Terrible, terrible genius.
This reminds me the time of Angelfire, Lycos, Geocities and banana gifs where you had to be armed with zen patience to close a popup, that time when millennials were not born yet
Wow holy damn, you have to close it four times
I think they removed it.
Oh, screw this. Screw this to heck.
