    3 things that Microsoft could

    Never


    Explain....! !!




    MAGIC #1

    An Indian 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

    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.

    Noticed the weird bug? No one
    can explain!

    MAGIC #3
    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?..!

    CON: Detailed Analysis
    According to this rather breathless little message, which circulates via email and online, it is not possible to create a folder named "CON" on a Microsoft Windows based computer. The message claims that not even Bill Gates or the whole Microsoft "Team" can explain why this might be so.

    It is in fact perfectly true that you cannot create a folder named "CON", nor can you rename an existing folder to "CON". However, there is no mystery surrounding this restriction whatsoever. The "team" at Microsoft, and a great many others besides, know perfectly well why you cannot name a folder "CON". "CON" and a number of other character strings are in fact reserved names that go back to the days of DOS and cannot be used to name folders or files. Other reserved names are:
    PRN
    AUX
    NUL
    LPT1
    COM1
    Potential drive letter - A: to Z:
    A number of others
    If you try to name a folder using one of these reserved names, the name will automatically revert to the default, generally "New Folder". Moreover, if you try to use a reserved name to name a file such as a Notepad or Microsoft Word document you will generally receive an error message similar to the following
    link below Cannot Create Windows Folder Named Con

    "Bush hid the facts" follow the link below for the reasons:

    Mkuu naona umeweka mambo sawa, manake mtu mwingine anaweza kusema yeye tu ndio kavumbua hizi string lakini ukweli wa mambo ni kuwa jambo hili lilishakuwepo siku nyingi na ufumbuzi wake upo na walla sio miujiza tena. NI kwamba tu wengi wetu si wepesi kufuatilia mambo kwa kina, na tunapokea jinsi tunavyoambiwa na kuyabeba hivyo hivyo.
