Because those character strings are reserved names going back to DOS days. You'll get the same result if you try to give a file one of those names.

Did you never come across that email stating that not even Bill Gates or MS knows why you can't use those names?

Kool-Aid.

Technically speaking, the Peoples Temple guys drank Flavor Aid, not Kool-Aid, but let's not split hairs here.

Kool-Aid: Kool-Aid is usually sold in powder form, in either packets or small tubs. The drink is prepared by mixing the powder with sugar and water

Cool-Aid: Cool Aid focuses its services for adults who are homeless or in need of help and provides assistance to over 10,000 individuals every year.

Take a lesson from parakeets. If you're ever feeling lonely, just eat in front of a mirror.

Even more important than honesty is trust.
And if you trust someone, you allow them a private life… which means they have secrets.

Secrets are so important - even when we share a life with someone else. We are individuals and have a right to keep certain things to ourselves. How boring we would be if we were known completely.

Inside every old man is a young man wondering what happened.

And in women too. I would really like to shoot the person that told us we had to grow up and mature.

Arguing with a woman is like braaing chicken. When you think you're done, give it another 20 minutes.

Its complicated and as much as I would love to divulge what went down it is something that happened behind closed doors and we as a group decided to keep it behind closed doors.

just a quick word of advise... when you decide on things like this that involves my mother it's best to let the daughter know that she isn't supposed to let the cat out of the bag, not that I have publically but no one told me to stay still... just a thought...

Why not? If you can almost buy it - it is imperative to test drive it. How will you know you really want it otherwise?
