It’s nice when you find an easter egg in a piece of software and it’s actually useful. Our favorite Anti-Spyware tool, Spybot, has a great hidden feature to help you pass the time when running a manual scan… a game!

It works a little bit like minesweeper, but there are no mines… instead you have to click the tan squares and try and uncover the hidden picture. Each time you check a square, the tan squares move to a different location surrounding the selected square. It’s oddly addicting…


For all the details, check it out at Mysticgeek’s blog… due to technical issues, I can’t directly include his post in the main feed yet, but I’ll have that sorted out soon.
