I am tempted to call this the "original and best" software Easter egg, as far as design applications are concerned. The best thing about it is that the keyboard shortcut to call out the alien (Alt+Ctrl+Shift+K, or Alt+Command+Shift on a Mac) is just one key different from the shortcut used to make the text all-caps, so it is very easy to activate it by accident without knowing exactly what happened. And what happens is this: an alien stomps onto your screen and zaps your textbox with a ray-gun – complete with glorious soundeffects. Textbox gone, alien – his wicked deed complete – gone, end of story.

The first time I encountered our little alien friend/fiend, was at the end of an all-nighter, at 3am, so when an alien came and took my text-box, I simply took it as a univocal sign that it was time to call it a day. And I didn't see the need to tell anyone about my alien encounter at the time…

Hold on a minute, is that an ... alien walking onto my screen?!
And what's that he's carrying, some kind of weapon?

...A RAY GUN of course! Here goes my textbox, ouch!

Will the alien still be here in Quark 7?
