  1. Thanx to Taima from xfire for this one.

    Open note pad up.

    Type "bush hid the facts"(without the quotes)

    Save it as what ever you want.

    Reopen it and see what happens.

    Very odd indeed.

    It didn't do anything, maybe it's just a easteregg for XP and not Vista :p

    Yup, just tried it and all I get is: See attachment, because if I try and copy and paste it into the reply window, it just comes up as 畢桳栠摩琠敨映捡獴, which is even weirder.

    I haven`t a clue why this happens, but would sure love to know.

    Regards Howard :)

    Yeh, sorry for the buzzkill. But I thought I had seen something about that working with a few other things before, so I looked it up real quick :)

    The reason it happens has to do with the way Notepad saves txt files:
