What is Big Cheese Key?

If life were perfect, people would be able to work nonstop all day, typing away at their computers happily without a break.  Unfortunately, that just isn't the way things work; people in fact tend to work better if they take breaks every once in a while to space out their work.  But most bosses tend to not see things that way, so I offer you a tool for maintaining sanity in the Macintosh office: Big Cheese Key.

Big Cheese Key is a Control Panel which provides you with a quick and dirty way to make it look like you are hard at work if your boss decides to stop in and see you when you are in the middle of saving the planet Earth from invading aliens.

The idea behind the Big Cheese Key is simple; if the boss pops in unexpected while you are doing something that he might not be too happy about on your Mac, hit Big Cheese Key's "hot key."  When you type this keystroke (initially Shift-Option-Tab, but you can change it to be anything you like), Big Cheese Key puts up a phony Mac screen, freezing whatever you were doing.  Therefore, you look extremely innocent.  Then once the boss is gone, click the mouse button and you'll be right back where you started!
