IT Magic from Microsoft – Part II

Magic # 1

  • In windows we cant create folders with names CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9 directly from GUI. This is because, DOS device names are reserved words, and cannot be used as folder or file names.
  • if you still want to create the folders :….. Goto command prompt by typing cmd in the run menu. Type the following command to create the folders with these names… md \\.\\\con
  • The path may be like c:\abcd\xyz\… anything Similiarly remove the folder by replacing md with rd No Magic only Logic… UNC(Universal Naming Convention) is the Logic.

Magic # 2

  • Bush hid the facts is the common name for a bug present in so far all versions of Microsoft Notepad (since Windows 2000), which misinterpret a file in Windows-1252 or similar encoding as UTF-16.
  • While “Bush hid the facts” is the sentence that is most forwarded on the Internet, it does not exclusively occur with that phrase. The bug can be triggered by many sentences, including those that follow a particular
  • structure: one word with 4 letters, two or more words with 3 letters, one word with 5 letters.
  • Some phrases that will trigger this oddity are “畂 桳 栠 摩 琠 敨 映 捡 獴”,
  • “Bill can not dance”, “John has the parts”, “This app can break”, “This pad has bugzs”, “Feel the new power”, “Matrix can not lie”, and even long phrases like “Einstein’s thought regarding mathematics motivated Dhilung Kirat thinkin mathematics wonderfully amazing languagez”.
  • The bug occurs when such a string is entered into Notepad (with no other characters) and then saved as a text file. Upon reloading the file into Notepad, the text will be replaced with nine Chinese characters, or squares if the language pack has not been installed. To retrieve the original text, bring up the “Open a file” dialog box, select “ANSI” in the “Encoding” list box, and open the file.
  • The bug appeared for the first time in Windows 2000 but was not discovered immediately. It was discovered in early 2004 [1] and has since risen in popularity on the Internet.[citation needed] This bug occurs when a file where only the above mentioned string is present. If the file were to be modified by clearing the content and repasting the same string, saved and reopened, this bug will not be reproduced. Notepad misinterprets the encoding of the file when it is re-opened. If the file is originally saved as “Unicode” rather than “ANSI”
  • the text displays correctly. Older versions of Notepad such as those that came with Windows 95, 98 or ME do not include Unicode support so the error does not occur.

Magic # 3

  • =rand (200, 99)
  • this is not bug or error. it is a feature of MS WORD providing a random paragraph writing for testing different formats.
  • how do you test a feature of paragraph formatting if have to type a long paragraph, it gives you that feature

A Supercomputer to Save Earth – “Earth Simulator”

The Earth Simulator (ES) was the fastest supercomputer in the world from 2002 to 2004. The system was developed for NASDA, JAERI, and JAMSTEC in 1997 for running global climate models to evaluate the effects of global warming and problems in solid earth geophysics.

It has been able to run holistic simulations of global climate in both the atmosphere and the oceans down to a resolution of 10 km.

Located at the Earth Simulator Center (ESC) in Kanazawa, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan, the computer is capable of 35.86 trillion (35,860,000,000,000) floating-point calculations per second, or 35.86 TFLOPS.

Built by NEC, the ES is based on their SX-6 architecture. It consists of 640 nodes with eight vector processors and 16 gibibytes of computer memory at each node, for a total of 5120 processors and 10 tebibytes of memory. Two nodes are installed per 1 metre x 1.4 metre x 2 metre cabinet. Each cabinet consumes 20 kW of power. The system has 700 terabytes of disk storage (450 for the system and 250 for the users) and 1.6 petabytes of mass storage in tape drives. The ES is almost five times faster than ASCI White.

Construction started in October 1999, was completed by February 2002, and the site officially opened on March 11, 2002. The project cost 7.2 billion yen.

Earth Simulator’s capacity was surpassed by IBM’s Blue Gene/L prototype on September 29, 2004.

The ESC has several special features that help to protect the computer from natural disasters or occurrences. A wire nest hangs over the building which helps to protect from lightning. The nest itself uses high-voltage shielded cables to release lightning current into the ground. A special light propagation system utilizes halogen lamps, installed outside of the shielded machine room walls, to prevent any magnetic interference from reaching the computers. The building is constructed on a seismic isolation system, composed of rubber supports, that protect the building during earthquakes.

A Few Windows XP Tips – Try and Feel

Looking for a better screen font display?
Enable ClearType, Microsoft’s trademark font display technology, for a drastic improvement in screen font rendering. Right-click anywhere on your desktop. Now select Properties. Under the Appearance tab, click Effects. Check the box for Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts, and in the drop-down menu, select ClearType. Press OK, and apply the change.

Check that your Windows Firewall is turned on
To make sure your Windows Firewall hasn’t been accidentally disabled, go to your Control Panel and click Windows Firewall. Make sure the radio button for On (recommended) is selected. Add exceptions to your Firewall by going to the Exceptions tab and adding the programs that you think should have access to the Internet to the list of exceptions.

Instantly activate your screensaver
In XP, you can put a short cut of your favorite screen saver on your desktop to instantly start your screen saver. Here’s how. Go to Start on your desktop and click on Search. In the help box, click on All files and folders. and then type in *.scr. Select your screen saver file and right click. Then select Send To, and then Desktop.

Put your Monitor to sleep
Right click on the desktop and click on Properties. In the dialog box that appears, click on the Screen Saver tab. Click on Power and in the dialog box that appears click on the Turn off Monitor list. Select a time to automatically after which the monitor will be turned off. Click OK twice and you’re set.

Using your Windows Key
Your Windows key can be used to for many short cuts. If you want to open your Windows Explorer quickly just press your Windows key and E. If you want to open the Run dialog box, just press the Windows key and R. If you want to open your search dialog box, press your Windows key and F.And Windows key with U will lead to open the windows utility manager. If you have password protected your Windows, Press the Windows key and L together to Lock the Computer.

Change the look of folder icons
If you don’t like the look of the folder icons on your desktop, you can change them. Right click on the folder, select Properties. Click on the Customize tab, and under the Folder icons area, click on the Change Icons button. Select the icon of your choice and select OK.

Minimize a Window to your taskbar
If you’re tired of using the mouse over and over again to minimize a window, here’s a handy tip. To minimize a window using just the keyboard, press Alt, Spacebar and N together.

Display album art in your music folder thumbnails
If your music files are in WMA format, XP automatically picks up the album art and displays it, both in the folder thumbnail as well as in the Windows Media Player display. If your files are in MP3 format, you can download the album art from the Internet and then customize each folder to display it. But this takes a lot of time. A faster way around is to save each image as ‘folder.jpg’ and put it in the correct folder. Once you do this, XP will pick up that image and use it as the thumbnail for the folder, and also use the image to display in Windows Media Player while playing songs from the album.

How to stop Windows Media Player from accessing your information
You may be uncomfortable with the idea of Windows Media Player collecting your information and sending it to various websites. You can stop this. Go to the Tools menu of Windows Media Player. Select Options and then go to the Player tab. Look for the check box that says “Allow Internet sites to uniquely identify your player?” and make sure it is not selected.

Opening folders with a single click
If you’d rather not have to double-click everything to open it, here’s the way out. Go to My Computer, and select Options in the Tools menu. Choose Folder options. In the dialog box that opens, select the check box that says ‘Single-click to open an item (point to select)’, and click OK.

Making web pages available offline with Internet Explorer
You may occasionally need to refer to a website, and you may not be able to connect to the Internet at the time. An easy way out of the situation is to go to the Favourites tab in Internet Explorer, and click Add to Favourites. In the dialog box that is displayed, select the Make available offline check box, and press OK.

IT Magic from Microsoft – Lets Try and get confirmed…

Information Technology has been one of the key requirements of the current day-to-day work in the work. Just because of this fact, geiant who are leading try to produce error-free data manipulation every time. Following are some of the interesting points which that has been deviated on Microsoft.
Just try them out and have funnn 🙂

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.
5.) re-open it with notepad.
is it just a really weird 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
then see the magic………. ;))
