Heh. Well it seems that Microsoft is immediately dropping the "Metro" name from its awful new user interface. They are backpedalling by suggesting that it was a code name all along, but the truth seems to be that they're facing legal action by someone who already owns that name.

They should give it a descriptive name, such as:

Grid Oriented Application Tablet Second Edition

(the acronym will do just fine of course)

I accidentally discovered something amusingly inane.

If you have a Windows box, right-click on the Recycle Bin, and 'Create Shortcut'.
Then, drag-n-drop the shortcut you created (it'll be on the desktop somewhere) into the Recycle Bin.

Continue to do that for as long as you're amused.

Did you try to drag the recycle bin over the shortcut to recycle bin?

I hadn't tried that, no.

It's still a testament to the disconnect at MS, though, that, even with Windows 7, the Recycle Bin only works for objects in the GUI. Delete a file from the Command Prompt and it's gone!

Which is good.

Because if I want to delete a file with no fuss, I go to the command prompt.
Otherwise, Windows Explorer occasionally likes to freak out and hang its head in complete indecision about your request to delete a file, copy it, or move it to some location (network or otherwise).

Fucking Microsoft.

That is all.

I wouldn't recommend doing that, Ragnar. You might catch a virus. :P

I just guffawed out loud in the middle of a conference call.

Reading Uncensored in the middle of a conference call? Serves you right :-P

*laughs*  Probably true.  But it's better than falling asleep!

Hmm ... conference calls ... using Windoze ... dunno which is more unpleasant!

For those of us who don't use Windoze, please explain what the "recycle bin trick" does?
