I was trying to resize Windows Defender as small as possible to take a screenshot when I noticed the minimum size it would accept:

I suppose this means Windows Defender is the devil =)

Hmm. That is a funny coincidence.
Took me a minute to notice the number in the bottom of the screen shot. Before that I couldn't figure out what you meant with the devil comment.
On a more serious note even if the number of the beast is 666 I don't think that means 666 is a bad number. 666 is just a number despite what bad things may be using it.
Also how did you get a tooltip with the Window size? I don't get one with I try to resize a Window.
And what program do you use to take screen shots with? When I use just ALT+Printscreen I don't get the border shadow or context menus like the ones in the articles show.

Intersting, apparently 666 means something devilish. I had never heard that. Proves again how cultures are different. I only began to understand the posting after I read jd's comments.

@whs

Sorry about the confusion... I always forget that people probably don't know what I'm referring to when I make jokes.

I got the tooltip with Sizer, and I usually use WinSnap when I take screenshots, but sometimes I use other tools as well.

I know that little pixies live in chips (they're the ones that rearrange all those 0's & 1's)
But a devil, or a beast? That must be who creates BSOD's!

What on earth is a "fladgin tool" Could not even find it in a 3 Kilo Oxford Dictionary.

It's a tool you need if you're fladgin. Only used around this time of year
(hence it gets hidden away in the shed, and hard to find)

And I thought it was the thing they were using in the old days to beat the grains out of the ears - kind of like one heavy stick attached to a handle with a string.
