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.

Well pipo, it is not certain where the nunchaka originated, Japan or China. But it was a tool for threshing.
But because the peasants were not allowed to have arms (how did they pick their noses you may ask) they started using everyday implements as weapons. They come in different styles and sizes, and with various names.

So that's what Michaelangelo got up to when he finished painting the ceiling! I didn't know that!

why do they need to pick a nose? weren't they happy with the ones they were born with?

by the way, did you get to find out who killed your battery?
