    [FONT=&quot]MAGIC #1[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as 'CON'. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]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


    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? :-??


    MAGIC #3[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]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...[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Open Microsoft Word and type

    =rand (200, 99)
    And then press ENTER then see the magic...............................[/FONT]


    Only 1 and 3 worked for me :)

    Hehe they all worked for me! The second one
    turned the words into about 8 weird bars
    in case you wanted to know.

    The first one clearly wasn't discovered by "an Indian" however, it was well known about by Microsoft who put in intentionally themselves. I can't remember why though :)

    Anyway, cool post man. :)

    I got so curious I looked it up. Turns out there's a bunch of other words, too, on folders.

    writes a few pages for you - number 2 doesn't do anything for me - just shows the line it tells you to put in - no quotes or anything
