Today we see a couple of, the famous suite of open source office.

Open “Calc“, OpenOffice's spreadsheet and write the string in any cell “=TTT()“. Will be displayed face a different every time that the expression is repeated.

Always “Calc” write in any cell “=game()“. Confirming the formula will read “say what?“. Changing the formula in “=game("StarWars")” it will appear integrated in OpenOffice a window where you can play a clone of the famous 2d space shooter “Space Invaders“. Repeating the procedure more than once will show the message “oh no, not again!“.
