Windows: Notepad Can Break

In a keynote speech at EclipseCon, Dr Herbert Thompson pointed out this funny little bug with Windows Notepad.

-Open up notepad.exe
-type "this app can break" without the quotes
-Hit file/save, type in a filename.

The text will be garbled, or in Simplified Chinese. Apparantly there is a bug with the text encoding. I did a search, and found some funny alternatives.

-"Bush hid the facts"
-"1111 111 111 11111"
