There are some silly errors that the windows user experiences ,which even Bill Gates couldn’t explain.
In this post i will let you know some of these rare and funny errors.
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. ( “CON ” capital letters )
ERROR NO.2 :-
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?..!
Open calculator ie.. Goto run and type – calc
Now type the following .Enter “4” .
Take its square root by using the square root button
,Now you will get 2.
Subtract 2 from it.
The answer should have been 0 but its not…. try try………………….
The last but not the least. This isn’t any error but a cool notepad trick !!
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!!!
You know some more ? If yes please do comment below .
SMACK that like button if this post entertained you.
These are just pranks to fool your friends . Ofcourse there is explaination about ,why you cant create a folder or file named ‘con’ and as well as CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9,
LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9 .
- early versions of MS-DOS did not support a directory hierarchy, device files were distinguished from regular files by making their names reserved words. This means that certain file names are reserved for device files, and cannot be used to name new files or directories. The reserved names themselves are chosen to be compatible with “special files” handling of PIP command in CP/M.
Con is for console: The system console, root console or simply console is the text entry and display device for system administration messages, particularly those from the BIOS or boot loader, the kernel, from the init system and from the system logger.
- Microsoft deliberately inserted the =rand(200,99) since it is just a random function.
- Its definitely a bug in Calculator. You might get different result in different Windows versions but the result will never be correct i.e. 0.The only reason behind this bug which I can figure out might be the way computer calculates square root. The square root of 4 is calculated as 1.9999….. up to infinite by computer and it shows the result as 2 using the round off mechanism. And when we subtract 2 from the result, it actually subtracts it from 1.9999….. up to infinite and shows the big series of numbers in minus.
- Its just the coincidence , that the entered text in wingdings font appears in correspondence to the story above.
