fakebar(value) displays progressing waitbars until you press cancel

value: how many loops are to be done until a waitbar is full. Try values > 1000 (optional parameter).


Creates a waitbar with changing random progress. Use it to show your boss that you can't work at the moment because systemload is 100% and the calculations will take some time -> coffee ;-)
