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.

  • 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 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.

  • I wish that hadn't been deleted. That comment is a bit of a work of art.

  • I don't mean to devalue this post, but does it really need more upvotes than I have fingers?

    @musefan It wasn't my intention to get a bunch of upvotes for this, looking back at it, I asked an obvious question.

    @musefan you simply need more fingers. That's the actual problem.

    It's just like everywhere else, @musefan. We have imaginary points, and they don't really matter. Aug 21, 2013 at 14:06

    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 Aug 21, 2013 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!

    How do we know you didn't create them just to answer this question to get some free unicorn dollars? :-) Aug 21, 2013 at 13:53

    @psubsee2003 How do we know you didn't create all the accounts involved in order to get comment upvotes?

  • @Bart same goes for you and Cody! ;) Aug 21, 2013 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. Aug 21, 2013 at 14:39
