    Microsoft crazy facts




    MAGIC #1

    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, couldnt answer why this happened!
    TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE "CON" FOLDER

    MAGIC #2

    This is something pretty cool and neat...and unbelievable. ..
    At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldnt answer why this happened!
    Try it out yourself...
    Open Microsoft Word and type
    =rand (200, 99)
    and then press ENTER



    MAGIC #3

    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?

    #3 works with any 4-3-3-5 string, just so you know. It is just a result of the Unicode detection software in Notepad. If your font supports Chinese, Chinese characters are displayed.

    #2 is just a method of testing the Word software on your computer.

    #1 is a result of the early MS-DOS framework of windows in which some device names were reserved. It also works for CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9.

    Remember, many of the Microsoft employees are millionaires, with PHD's in math/computer science. Don't think they don't understand why these bugs occur!

    I think they were intentional, kinda like googlemaps and half of the stupid places you can find with it. They're just to get people with too much time on their hands, like me and a lot of others, to find them and freely advertise their shit. :p
