This has to be online.
Did you know DOS had device files? NO? You thought only *nix had that disease?
Welll, do this.
Create a folder called con on the root of your drive...
yeah yeah, in Dos or Windows boxen not *nix...
What was that again? you could not. Dont tell me you cannot create a simple folder in your drive?
You cannot even create c:\con on your computer and you are reading this?
okay, then go ahead and create c:\com1 or c:\prn
Mebbe something is wrong with your folders. Try creating a text file with those names. c:\con.txt or c:\prn.txt, or for that fact try creating c:\con.??? on your computer... failed?
well, here is the reason.
conning away the M$ bashers, this is sick and sad
