    This was recently recommended to me to help clean up messy Windows issues...like hidden files.

    Link fixed. The forum software wouldn't allow the old name [it had dirty words in it]. Luckily an new name is available.

    A different sort of defenestration is more practical...

    Quick definitions (Defenestration)

    noun: the act of throwing someone or something out of a window

    Hurkyl, this is the second time that an attempt to fisk your post requires a trip to the dictionary.

    Yah, yah, it's a big stretch, but I thought it was amusing when I first heard the joke. :smile:



    "The Defenestration of Prague" was always my most favoritely named historical event, thus I've always remembered the term, and love the rare chances I get to work it into everyday conversation. :smile:


    P.S. What was the other time? And I can't find "Fisk" in the dictionary

    I wondered where you got that! I assumed it was not just a paraffle; like my responses.

    Fisk didn't come up on mine either. Essentially it means to scrutinize an argument in great detail.

    Also, I'm not sure when, but I think actually on two other occasions your vocabulary forced me to hit the dictionary.

    Here is my favorite useless word.
    paneity
    n. Theology, state of being merely bread.

    Windows is a wonderful, robust, stable and secure operating system. It has a unique user friendly interface which is highly customizable. Microsoft rarely releases security patches since there's not much exploits to it. Bill Gates means well, he wants a computer in every home...running Windows.

    And I remember something out of South Park:
    -Bill, you said windows 98 will be stronger, better and faster on the internet...
    -Well, it is... *strange noises*...

    he computer seemed to work fine atferwards. do you know what the strange noises were?
