it seems to be system thing. So you can't create file "con.inc".... lame fuckers, and they are called "top coders of the world" and earn horrible amounts...

You can't name your file CON, AUX, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, PRN or NUL, and you can't have a file named $boot on the root of C:\.

this is a nice quote Smile

Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928) wrote:

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."


another version is:
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it."

perhaps it is time to build own OS Smile vid.

vb: there are enough such OSes already, which are coded just for fun, not really usable. I would rather continue with FASMLIB... as it grows bigger i see more and more usages
