I did the bsod thing a long time ago to him. That was about six pranks ago. Give or take.
Nothing that drastic. His main comp is a laptop anyway, not many places to hide

I tried using the short name, it wouldn't accept it because the last character wasn't recognized by windows, and no it wasn't the alt 255 blank character. I tried that first. 8) I don't want to wipe his computer. It's not about pure punishment so much as utter annoyance.

Not to insult those people, but my brother is in recon, and has had quite a bit more training in hand to hand combat than I, and I'm guessing those people have had. Besides, the only physical harm he should be caused should be by me personally. 8)
@Pseudomelon and Kitkun
I can change the windows font to something unreadable. For the main event though, I'll change many of his system sounds. I'll record the original sound, then a moderate pause of silence, then it'll start playing a song or annoying tone for a bit. He rarely has his speakers on, so it might be awhile before he notices, but should be annoying enough when he does.
