Actually I'm pretty sure it's been proven that all but one of them are possible. Not counting games -1 and -2. :V
That is, among the original 32,000. It was expanded to 1 million in XP or 2000, adding a handful more impossible ones.

The Vista and 7 versions added -3 and -4, which are unloseable games.

All these tech support idiocy scenarios remind me of this.

Neither am I...it is an alternate form of scoring. More (or too many) details here.

Also after reading up on Windows' Solitaire history that record had to be on Vista or 7, since those versions allow for statistics tracking. In which case...even more shock...35K+ games since 2007 at earliest?! :o

Time to move them over to FreeCell ~ oh wait, then they'll try to solve all one million and four combinations even though some of them are impossible....

It's Vista. And I'm pretty sure it's vanilla style, no reshuffles.  And, I want to think they got that laptop in '08.

I've threatened to addict Grandma to tetris, but they're both so resistant to learning anything computer based that I doubt I could interest them.

Just leave a copy on the desktop and see if they bite.
There was something here once. Wonder what...

While you're at that, put it as a shortcut, put the Solitaire icon on it, and rename it "Solitaire" if you really want a prank :3

One time I noticed one of my family members was searching Recent Documents and such very thoroughly, so I set up a folder on the desktop labeled PORN, hid it, enabled viewing of hidden folders and stuck a bunch of huge files that just said "I TRUST YOU TOO"

I knew of the practice of making a folder labeled PRAWN, make it available via network on a LAN party, and putting in several undred megs of images and videos showing prawns.

This is even petter.

If only I could lay a trap like this on Facebook, just for my snooping aunt.

They don't even bother with the other icons. I doubt they'd notice the new addition.

While you're at that, put it as a shortcut, put the Solitaire icon on it, and rename it "Solitaire" if you really want a prank :3

"Purvis, the laptop's all screwed up! Think we should buy a new one?"

Of note: This has often been the reaction they've considered to moderate problems. I've probably saved 'em a good couple thousand in not getting new computers.

Actually, most consumers react this way when they even get light-moderate problems. Perfectly good computers that can last them 3-7 years (hell, most of the current hardware is already too powerful for most consumers)...suddenly wasted within 18 months due to how they can't use a reinstall disc!
