color cycle (slow)
  • 11:36 I don't know why a Base Hue changer isn't built into WinMobile. Why simplify a setting (color scheme is now one color), then not expose it? #
  • 13:28 It's sort of bad when I have to convince myself not to put "this is expected behavior, you retard" as a reply to a bug report. #
  • 14:53 Chlorine Triflouride is easily the most terrifying chemical I've ever heard of. #

Exposure of larger amounts of chlorine trifluoride, as a liquid or as a gas, ignites tissue. The hydrolysis reaction with water is violent and exposure results in a thermal burn. The product of hydrolysis is hydrofluoric acid, which is corrosive to human tissue, absorbs through skin, selectively attacks bone and stimulates pain nerves, and causes a potentially lethal poisoning.

Mmm, tasty.

I recommend Things I Won't Work With for other... interesting compounds.

Thanks for the link, looks like a fun read. :)

What was the bug report? Has microsoft incorperated code to change the color of the BSOD to a random rainbow hue?

That would actually be pretty cool.

This isn't related to Windows 7, I was referring to Windows Mobile. WM5 and 6 have a simplified color scheme relative to WM2003: instead of seperate colors for every UI element, there's just one hue- the Base Hue, which has no Value or Saturation- and variations on that hue (in, well, value and saturation) decide on the colors for every element in the system.

All that, and there's no exposed way to change the hue without finding a theme that has the hue you want, which strikes me as incredibly moronic design. Fortunately, a 26K application written in .NET for Mobile Devices, consisting of a color wheel and an "OK" button, allows for this customization. I have absolutely no idea why something essentially equivalent wasn't included with Windows Mobile.

There are a lot worse chemicals than that...
