BeachCam / WorkScreen Autochange? Alibi?

With a high speed internet line at work it's easy to have a window to the beach web cam ... 4 days until I leave ...

Anyone think of a way to have the computer automatically switch from PDC beach scene to financial data whenever anyone walks into the office?

If not, any creative excuse / alibi that folks could suggest to have ready?

such as, "Oh that screen, that's related to the project ..."

Oh that's easy!
Alt+Tab cycles through open windows - takes a millisecond to switch....try it.

Another option is to use "Hot Corners" software... lets you quickly activate or disable
your screensaver by moving the mouse into a corner of the screen. Google it.

I always have available windows on my taskbar at the bottom - it's quick. Also, athough obvious - face your monitor away from the door!

Which is really the truth! Once you catch the Playa virus, you're infected for life!
