Some Trick to Try out on Windows

These is share by a friend on facebook. Some of them are quite interesting:

Things that MICROSOFT Could not Explain!

Found that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the Computer which can be named as “CON”. This is something funny and inexplicable? At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this happened! TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE A “CON” FOLDER

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.
Noticed the weird bug? No one can explain!

Again this is something funny and can’t be explained?
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 And see the magic?..!

Magic #4
Did you know that a flight number from one of the planes that hit one of the two WTC towers on 9/11 was Q33N. In Notepad / WordPad or MS Word, type that flight number i.e Q33N. Increase the font size to 72. Change the font to Wingdings. ….. u will be amazed by the findings!!!

Have a try!

  1. Magic #1 is an easy explain. CON is a special device descriptor for console. try in command line:
    copy con asdf [return]

    it waits for input and a control-z. type whatever, control-z, return and you will have copied that text to a file named asdf. Other protected descriptors are ports like COM1,2,3,4 LPT1,2,3,4 NULL. catch them all.

  2. And for me #2 did nothing.

    But . . . Number three is very well known by the programming staff at Microsoft because they created it. This output is all of the help file data in one flat file ready to be properly formatted. When you click on a help topic it goes to the right portion of the file, copies the text for X number of characters, and displays it in a neat little box for you. Have you ever wondered why you never see physical help files in your Microsoft applications? This is why.

    There are more of these Rand codes that do other neat things like make the screen flash or make the computer seem to type by itself. Some have a practical purpose, some were just for fun, falling under what the programmers call Easter Eggs.

    Number four is an easy one. . . There was no flight Q33N used in the attacks on 9/11. Someone simply figured out how to create a weird message using wingdings and told everyone else there was such a flight number. Check it out for yourself – a simple Google search on the 9/11 attacks will prove this one.

    — The Eclectic Skeptic — I can doubt pretty much anything people say.

      1. Number 2 is odd, it definitely ‘worked’ on this museum install of XP – the text turned showed up as a sequence of what looked to be non ascii chars. Didn’t actually change the file, but notepad just wouldn’t re-display it.

        I’m using an ‘improved’ jiggered-with version called Notepad2 but I assume it’s using the same API calls / std windows objects as the original application. Anyhow it refused to re-display a file consisting of that string – how it got created made no difference that character sequence alone in a file will not render (so far that is, at 00:50 in the middle of the night!) Curious, regardless of how old this page may be 🙂 Thanks for the distraction 🙂 Dave J. [Missing Usenet!]
