Strange things in Windows XP

1. Open solitare > drag a card to some place > press ctrl+A while dragging , see what happens...! The card actually freezes there .

2. Want to finish Solitare without moving a single card .? just press alt+shift+2 ; Congratulations , you have finished solitare ..!

3. There is a hidden internet explorer in XP, just goto any folder and type in the URL .!

4. Just try renaming a folder by name "con" , on any drive in your computer.!!

5. Open notepad , type "bush hid the facts" or "this app can break" or "aaaa aaa aaa aaaaa", now save the file as [filename.txt] , close the current file and open the saved file...! ,you will get some strange characters unless you have
installed language pack for XP.


This trick works for some strings of length 4-3-3-5 .

How to get rid of this ..?
While saving the file just select the encoding type as UNICODE instead of ANSI ..

6. Wanna watch STAR WARS 4 on your windows XP , goto start>run and type "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl" , note that you must be connected to the net .

7. Open Microsoft Word , type "=rand(10,20)" press enter . See what happens..!
