mountain lion fail


Senior Member
don't know if you guys have heard of this, but it made me laugh so i thought i'd give Levi some 'PCs are better' ammo for later down the line! ;)

if you're running Mountain Lion, start typing anywhere, in any app, 'File :///' (without the space) and watch the app crash!
easy way to hide games at work i guess?

yeah I read about it but I'm pretty sure you can do the same sort of thing in windows by hiding the 'alt+f4' command in the script etc so I just say it's one of the little quirks that gets missed or can be misused.

it's definitely not deliberate... haha
my Messages app on Mac won't open now. text a friend with the code and each time it tries to load up it crashes.

can someone type in File: /// (without the space)? i want to see if it closes even if the user doesn't type it...? :)
