Just Another Genome Hacker,

Sadly, my most voted-up answer on Stackoverflow (312 votes) belonged to a question that later got deleted. The question came from a girl that asked for something cute that she could put on the icing of a birthday cake for her programmer boyfriend.

I suggested that, if her boyfriend is somewhat mathematically inclined, she write the following:

    sin(t) √|cos(t)|
r = __________________  - 2 sin(t) + 2
    sin(t) + 7/5

If he doesn't get it at first, she could tease him with saying that it is obvious that he should take the polar plot of it. If he still doesn't get it, she should tell him to enter it in WolframAlpha, that should yield the result:

@DanielBeck apparently I cut and pasted the folder contents but not the folder itself.

Will this also give the same NTFS rights to D:\MovedToDirectory as there were originally on C:\MovedDirectory?

comment How to reboot headless server with passphrase?
Makes me wonder why they offerd encryption during the installation process if I can't use it. Anyway, how do I remove the encryption so that I can login remotely?
