Weird stuff in Windows

Post by ERICK on Mon Nov 22, 2010 12:41 am

Weird stuff in Windows:
Magic #1
It was discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER
anywhere on the computer which can be named as “CON”.
This is something pretty cool…and unbelievable. ..
At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this
happened!
TRY IT NOW ,IT WILL NOT CREATE ” CON ” FOLDER


MAGIC #2 (this one is the best out of the three)
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1.) Open an empty notepad file
2.) Type “Bush hid the facts” (without the quotes)
3.) Save it as whatever you want.
4.) Close it, and re-open it.
Is it just a really weird bug? Confused?


MAGIC #3
This is something pretty cool and neat…and
unbelievable. .. At Microsoft the whole Team,
including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this
happened! It was discovered by a Brazilian. Try it out
yourself…
Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200, 99)
And then press ENTER.

MAGIC #2 (this one is the best out of the three)
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1.) Open an empty notepad file
2.) Type “Bush hid the facts” (without the quotes)
3.) Save it as whatever you want.
4.) Close it, and re-open it.
Is it just a really weird bug? Confused?


nice tricks...sa windows7 hindi gumana..sa brother ko nakapaglagay sya ng folder named con.hindi ko alam kung pano nya ginawa...hehe..ayaw nya ituro eh.. 2thumbsup ..

number 1 : NUL, AUX, CON, COM1-4, LPT1-3, and PRN
are reserved words used for DOS Devices

number 2 :Bush hid the facts is a common name for a bug present in the function IsTextUnicode of Microsoft Windows, which causes a file of text encoded in Windows-1252 or similar encoding to be interpreted as if it were UTF-16LE, resulting in mojibake. When "Bush hid the facts" is put in a new Notepad document and saved, closed, and reopened, the words "畢桳栠摩琠敨映捡獴" appear instead.(wikipedia)

number 3: It's a test feature

pero cool pa rin ehe
