Just so you all know... as neat as it is.. not GodMod, bit of a trick really.

The folder will be named whatever you put before the period.

Elephant.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Will give you an elephant control panel.

Neat non the less.

...And people complain that the Linux command line is hard.
It sure is harder to do

vim /etc/fstab

than

Godmode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Latter is much more intuitive. Indeed.

Awesome find Ina. Although...

Wow, you need a secret "godmode" hack to be able to do something that MS should have put into the OS by default -- a clear, concise, all-in-one control panel.

Congratulations Microsoft, you show us how much disdain you have for the people who pay your salaries, and you fail once again.

Shows how much you know...

Jesus = God = Holy Spirit

It's called a Trinity. Three persons in One. One person in Three forms, yet one God. It's a hard one to grasp mentally, but you'll get it after a while. :)

I think the reason that this was not out and easy to get to is because the majority of people tend to not know what they are doing, so the last think MS wanted to do was make it so the user can potently screw things up. So having this activated by a special means puts the power in the hands of the ones who know how to use it or have the common sense to know how to use it.

Maybe that's why Microsoft didn't put this in as default... Maybe they ARE smarter than some people think.
