https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18357715/hard-drive-shutoff-when-closing-winxp-manually

OP's solution makes absolutely no sense at all to me.

ive figured it out, i rewrote the whole thing in TCPIP and WingDings and once i caught the Kernel i asked him what to do, he said i need to IF(problem = oopsy) { do sums>0; algorithm++; 7=(n^6/12f(3.14-Maths.Py)); algorithm--; problem = almonds; } HardDrive.shutdown = True;

WingDings? Almonds?

  • They are both new users Today (OP and Answer-er) - Chances are they are the same person trolling the community. – rlemon Aug 21 '13 at 13:51
  • I think there are multiple trolls involved, unless the one grandmaster troll was powerful enough to create two seperate SO accounts... the clever bugger – musefan Aug 21 '13 at 13:51

    @musefan a certain user has been able to create far more than 2 accounts for nefarious purposes recently. I'm talking 3 digits, from what I've heard. 2 accounts is nothing. – Bart Aug 21 '13 at 13:55
  • I wish that hadn't been deleted. That comment is a bit of a work of art. – Asad Saeeduddin Aug 21 '13 at 13:58
  • I don't mean to devalue this post, but does it really need more upvotes than I have fingers? – musefan Aug 21 '13 at 14:00

    @musefan It wasn't my intention to get a bunch of upvotes for this, looking back at it, I asked an obvious question. – Stijn Aug 21 '13 at 14:02

    @musefan you simply need more fingers. That's the actual problem. – Bart Aug 21 '13 at 14:04

    It's just like everywhere else, @musefan. We have imaginary points, and they don't really matter. – Cody Gray Aug 21 '13 at 14:06

    @CodyGray: Seems like there isn't much that really matters anymore. Sod it, i'm not even gonna leave my desk the next time I need to pee, what's the point – musefan Aug 21 '13 at 14:10

    @Doorknob also, 43 accounts of which most have 101 rep and a single bronze badge: [citizen patrol] – John Dvorak Aug 21 '13 at 14:15

    uh, oh. SF's just got a spam post. Now SU. Now webapps. Now more. Open your recent question feed guys, and update your copies of my userscript – John Dvorak Aug 21 '13 at 14:16

Seems like it's an attempt to get Hugh Mann (probably the same person as the OP) some free rep. I suspect sockpuppetry, but of course we can't be sure. The evidence is remarkably clear however, both users were created today, the question and the answer are nonsense, etc.

Fortunately, the community handles this kind of stuff very well. It's already deleted!

  • ... a bit like this question and answer then... – musefan Aug 21 '13 at 13:52

    How do we know you didn't create them just to answer this question to get some free unicorn dollars? :-) – psubsee2003 Aug 21 '13 at 13:53
  • @musefan Heh, so much irony :D – Doorknob Aug 21 '13 at 13:54

    @psubsee2003 How do we know you didn't create all the accounts involved in order to get comment upvotes? – Asad Saeeduddin Aug 21 '13 at 13:54

    Can you all just stop talking to yourselves. – Bart Aug 21 '13 at 13:55
  • @Asad I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it may serve to incriminate me. ;-) – psubsee2003 Aug 21 '13 at 13:55

    Wow! I can't believe I wrote such awesome automatons that they could start arguing between themselves! – asheeshr Aug 21 '13 at 14:28
  • @Bart same goes for you and Cody! ;) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Aug 21 '13 at 14:38
  • @AsheeshR did you mean "between each other"? Arguing with oneself is a sign of a mental disease, especially if you do it aloud. – John Dvorak Aug 21 '13 at 14:39
