Slowly drive MATLAB users insane by doing something annoying at random intervals. Customize to deploy your own personal brand of evil.

A few ideas:
  >> beep on, beep % make noise
  >> disp('Why?'), why % display nonsense
  >> disp(datestr(now)) % display date and time
  >> calendar % display calendar
  >> figure % open a figure
  >> fprintf('\n') % insert blank line
  >> fprintf('>') % growing prompt
  >> disp('<<') % reverse prompt
  >> disp('>>>') % triple prompt
  >> fprintf(2, '>>\n'); % prompt in error message color
  >> exit % exit Matlab (truly, truly evil)

To run this function automatically when Matlab starts, call annoyatron() from startup.m. See 'startup' in Matlab's help for more info.
