    If you're making a Notepad program you should take this to the windows board.

    Often, when reopening an already open browser, instead of opening, the browser will just take the page passed to it as an argument, and open that in the already open window.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
