A little game for you. Exceptionally geeky folks may get this immediately (or even know already what this post will be about). What is wrong with this picture?

I'll let you look at that for a minute. See anything?

OK? Done.


Note the command itself:
Code:
dir "windows/logs"
I had no idea until today that, if you include the full path in double quotes, Windows will happily accept the / symbol in place of the normal \ symbol for separating folder names. Go try it now, but wildcards won't work when the path is enclosed in double quotes so it isn't that useful, just a "geeky/nerdy" trick.

    I thought it was going to be that the C in "c:\" was in lower case. I've only ever seen it capitalised.
