Microsoft Magic

Some of you might have already seen this.. but here you go, some "cool stuff" from Microsoft:

An Indian 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!

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.
A bug? :-??

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.
Amazing, isn't it?

MAGIC #1, this is due to CON in old day DOS is refer to either Screen (if use as stdout) or Keyboard (if use as stdin)
eg: in DOS, u typed TYPE A.TXT to print out the content of file, u can use COPY A.TXT CON to do the same things.

the other name that is not useable is PRN which refer to LPT1: by default. u can try also. no folder named PRN too.
