Excellent, I hadn't heard of this before. Thanks!

volks1470 01/05/2010 5:31 PM 9 Hide

I thought it was a joke, yep! It sure does work, even on the RC!

haze4peace 01/05/2010 5:35 PM 9 Hide

Thanks for the info. This is pretty awesome.

this is way better than jesus mode!

Just so you all know... as neat as it is.. not GodMod, bit of a trick really.

The folder will be named whatever you put before the period.

Elephant.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Will give you an elephant control panel.

Neat non the less.

rcpratt 01/05/2010 5:38 PM 2 Hide

Cool, but I don't see myself using it much. It is nice to have everything in one place, though.

Wow...awesome, good job Ina Fried.

Also, a hidden feature in Windows Vista proves to be useful.


SelfDestructMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

mitch074 01/05/2010 5:44 PM -3 Hide

...And people complain that the Linux command line is hard.


It sure is harder to do

vim /etc/fstab

than

Godmode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Latter is much more intuitive. Indeed.

[/sarcasm]

still, damn useful trick.

Awesome find Ina. Although...Wow, you need a secret "godmode" hack to be able to do something that
MS should have put into the OS by default -- a clear, concise, all-in-one control panel.Congratulations
Microsoft, you show us how much disdain you have for the people who pay your salaries, and you fail
once again.

I think the reason that this was not out and easy to get to is because the majority of people tend to not
know what they are doing, so the last think MS wanted to do was make it so the user can potently screw
things up. So having this activated by a special means puts the power in the hands of the ones who know
how to use it or have the common sense to know how to use it.

Shows how much you know...Jesus = God = Holy SpiritIt's called a Trinity. Three persons in One. One
person in Three forms, yet one God. It's a hard one to grasp mentally, but you'll get it after a while.

it is hard to grasp mentally because I think logically....

bakabaka :

does this work on win 7 64? i thought this crashes win 7 64bit

AFAIK it's fine with Vista 64 bit but crashes on 32... Haven't heard anything about Win7 64. I tried it on the
RC.

nirvanabah 01/05/2010 6:19 PM 2 Hide

Works in Vista as well.

nirvanabah 01/05/2010 6:20 PM -2 Hide

FYI - this works in Vista as well.

rcpratt 01/05/2010 6:21 PM 2 Hide

It works fine on Win7 64.
