I was talking in chat to someone who was installing software on my machine.  We seemed to be discussing computer hacking, but we were also talking about doing something regarding automation.
I couldn't see the person I was talking to, but I could see them remotely clicking through directory paths.  They were long and it was like Governments / United States / CIA / Hacking Tools. Ultimately this drilled down to a file called CRX.EXE.
I had a thought at the time that this was likely a grandiose labeling--and that the person was over-inflating their association with any intelligence agency. e.g. there wasn't anything in the other directories, and this was being done for show.
The machine the software was installed on had a Windows-95 looking menu.  I went looking around to see where this CRX had been installed.  It actually had gotten put in the top level as just "crx.exe" in the start menu.
I clicked it to run, but it said it didn't have any input parameters. So the window just said "hit any key to close window".
me: "Ummm...this is not a GUI program, apparently. What am I supposed to pass on the command line to get it to do something?"

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
