WSH Scripts

Script Center

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/default.asp

Crusing through the front page of Microsoft''s website, I noticed a link that referred to "new scripts". *Click* What followed was a very nice collection of Windows Scripting Host code snippets and sample scripts. I remember hitting a similar resource some time ago that wasn''t very impressive. The contents are far more useful these days, so if you like to admin by way of command line and / or automation, bookmark this page.

Does it do windows?

Small Biped Entertainment Robot

This is one bad sucker, it cost about 150K but way worth it my friend.

Do you realize the street value of this mountain? It is covered in pure snow.

Dancing eggs

Hi! Iove egg

Very cool animation, you must check it out...

ummm hidden donut

I haven''t been to many IT shops that don''t have a stealth MP3 or game server in a corner somewhere In order to keep your secret, you may wish to apply this registry trick that will prevent the server from registering with the browser service. You can still attach to shares and other resources by name, but it simply won''t appear in browse lists.

The 101 Dumbest Moments in Business

Business 2.0 - Magazine Article - The 101 Dumbest Moments in Business

So I didn''t see some of the things that I noticed at stupid last year but these rank up there.

Aunt Karen

Angel sent this to me, quite approprite during our current wartime effort:

The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories.

"Johnny, do you have a story to share?"
"Yes, ma''am, my daddy told a story about my Aunt Karen.

Aunt Karen was a pilot in Desert Storm and her plane was hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a small flask of
whiskey, a pistol and a survival knife. She drank the whiskey on the way down so it would not break and then her parachute landed right in the
middle of twenty enemy troops. She shot fifteen of them with the gun until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, ''till the blade
broke and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands."

"Good heavens," said the horrified teacher, "What kind of moral did your daddy tel…

Sonic Blue in Chapter 11

The Balloonist

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below.
He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don''t know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.

I am," replied the woman, How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you''ve not been much help so far.

"The woman below responded, "You must be in Management." "I am, "replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?" "Well," said the woman,…

Grep

grep is my friend, a quick check on the configs, found that the plugins dir was goofed, and now I have perlscript again :)

Now for the plumber :(


O the new server is a AMD 2200 dual proc w 2GB ram running six User-mode Linux Kernels :)

OK, I have switched servers, but I am having issues with Perlscript in the MT configuration. So the 2 people in Africa who read this list won''t have access to the archives for a few days.

Cool hoverbot

Draganflyer III Gyro Stabilized Helicopter

OK, now this is cool, a friend of mine Mark has this neat hovertoy, but it takes some quick hand movements to get it to fly around in a circle.

Now take some geeks who have strapped a gyro, computer controls, and a webcam on theirs and they sell it for $900. Way too much to pay, but kick ass none the less.
