The biggest XKCD ever 

Posted by Magnetic_dud Wednesday, September 19, 2012 6:17:00 PM Categories: Internet

When I saw the today's XKCD, I thought "meh"

Then I noticed the tooltip: "Clic and drag"

So I clicked and dragged the image on the right

"Oh, cool, there is a little world here"

And I continued to drag

Again

Again

Again

Is it endless??? It's an huge comic, undoubtedly the biggest in the world!

Fortunately for our wrists, there is who made a keyboard-friendly version, making the exploration a pleasant experience!

You can also zoom backwards, finding easter eggs as a Falling Icarustwo falling whales, or someone doing surf on a Jet that it would be *impossibile* to find with "click and drag"

Windows 8 deletes files without confirmation

Just a while ago I was examining a folder in Windows 8, when I accidentally pressed DEL. Boom, deleted, without confrimation! Ok, it has just moved to the Recycle Bin, but I'd like to have a confirmation.

Probably Microsoft saw that Apple in OS X deletes files without a confirmation, so they thought: "hey, if they do that way, it means it's the right way!". Well, on OS X, you delete files with cmd+del, not by just pressing the del key, so the accidental deletion of files and folders is harder!

Fortunately, it's possible to enable the confirmation, by following those three easy steps:

  • Right click on the Recycle Bin
  • Select "Properties"
  • Select the "Display delete confirmation dialog" checkbox
