Default How to break Notepad

If this is OFN, then

Linky here

Here's a really funny way to break Notepad that a coworker showed me this morning. I bet this is one of those jokes that's been around for ages, but this was the first I ever heard of it, so it's new to me.

This actually works. It will not crash your computer, it just breaks Notepad in that it causes it to display very oddly. No perm damage comes of the following steps.

Here's how to do it:
1. Open up Notepad (not Wordpad, not Word or any other word processor)
2. Type in this sentence exactly (without quotes): "this app can break"
3. Save the file to your hard drive.
4. Close Notepad
5. Open the saved file by double clicking it.
Not only that, try these lines instead of "this app can break" (without quotes)
1. "Bush hid the facts"
2. "Gore hid the facts"

It doesnt really matter what you type as long as the words are 4 characters, 3 characters, 3 characters, 5 characters long.

I can confirm that this still happens in Vista as well.

I've got a friend who did it a better way.

Hex edit the thing to display menus in 1337, then when you close it, open a recursive error box saying that it can't be closed.


But odd....... you wouldn't think that a text editor would be crashed by entering, saving, and opening text.
