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.
Wow holy damn, you have to close it four times
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
I think they removed it.
Oh, screw this. Screw this to heck.
