  1. Here use this VBS Ping Scan that ping computer and if it reply connects to the computer and

    lists some basic info.

    You could do what you want without using any 3 rd party app using VBS scripting.

    Dear Super Moderator, thank you for your contribution. I am not well-versed in VBS scripting, so I have no way to comment the code snippet.

    BTW, I have resigned the position as I.T. Executive and am now seeking new job. It is too much to handle 40 outlets statewide.

  2. My ISP assigns me private IP as the WAN IP. :no:

    I have been subscribing 384Kbps wired broadband package all this while, and they are now targeting 384Kbps subscribers to migrate IPv4 to IPv6, as what they termed as "Large Scale Network" (LSN).

    How is it going to work with DDNS then? Should I get an expensive fixed IP? Any solutions for this? Thanks.

  3. This works well for me, I hope to share it with others. It is a legal stuff, I hope so.

    Dyn.com or DynDns.org is charging for new customers. However, according to the Forum Moderator, customers can sign up for trial package and then cancel the subscription to get one free host name services.

    I am not sure if signing up means filling in and validating the credit card details. But you can avoid the hassle, by signing up at http://www.dlinkddns.com instead, then login through http://www.dyndns.org, they are somehow linked. You will get one host name free.

  4. I am planning to write a F&B Order Taking application for a handheld PC, if not smartphone or tablet PC.

    Few years ago, I heard the launching of Windows CE 6.0, and now I heard of Windows RT for Tablet PC.

    Given the available model of handheld PC/PDA/smartphone/palmtop/Tablet PC on the market, which kind of gadget and OS should I targetting for?

    I will find out the SDK for that platform myself later on.

    I appreciate for any inputs and replies.

    edit: Please help to move to Handheld section.....

  5. Thank you Patron, for your guidance. I have understood better now.

    I have somemore to consult you, it is more cultural English...

    Dude... SERIOUSLY?

    When you ask "Seriously?", does it mean I was not serious enough to pose the question? Or you mean I was joking?

    This truly isn't worthy of the reply I just gave. (is there a WTF emoticon?)

    This sentence is a bit tricky for me to understand. Can you help to translate to simple English...?

    No offence intended. I am studying American slangs and trying to understand Western culture, for example, in following the forum rules and etiquettes.

    Thank you very much, Patron.

  6. The unattended sections are primarily for installation of Windows. The other sections are for use of Windows.

    Windows 98 is not freeware. I can't speak about the member projects.

    Thank you for your prompt reply.

    For example, if I want to ask the pricing of Windows 8, which section is more appropriate for that? Or only technical questions allowed?

  7. Everytime I sign in, I am lost, staring at the well-organized and classified sub-divisions, and have nowhere to begin.

    I am not sure what does it mean by "Unattended ....Windows XP / Vista / 7", can someone explain it to me?

    And, is Windows 98 now free to download and use? What are the main purpose of contributions from the members, are they for a tweak, or customized-solutions?

    I am even ignorant where to post this topic..... Perhaps someone can point me to the right direction in using this forum (without much violation of the forum's rules, you know :angel ).

    Thank you for any replies.

  8. what i mean is, it's one thing to make some cool batch file that does all the reporting.

    it's another to create a batch file that runs all the time, and emails you when a site is down.

    Oh, I see.

    E-mail part is tricky, have to specify SMTP server, login details and alternative port number, etc.

    You know that I was looking for something like that, instead of e-mailing, why not texting (or sending SMS) directly to my cell phone (or handphone, mobile phone).

    And, AFAIK, some modems that I have seen allow notification through e-mails if the link is down, so are some DVRs. But this is more a hardware-approach.

    So, net_user do you have that very batch that does the things you told me: ping site and send notification e-mails? I am not requesting one, but just curious to know if you already have one.

  9. Most car players read mp3/wma files now so unless yours is very old, why bother making an audio-cd ? I've played mp3s on cd-rw in my cars since at least 8 years, but I can't remember trying an audio cd-rw. The car I have now has a USB connector so I don't burn cd's anymore. That USB system even plays m3u playlists. I should try playlist on mp3-cd just for the sake of it. I'll report later.

    I haven't try a MP3 CD on it... Thank you for the suggestion.

  10. I have came across Hidden Administrator which will not be further developed. It worked great for a while, but later on I found it buggy.

    It is useful for viewing computer screen remotely.

    RealVNC can't do this. TightVNC has came up with a new project which is not free, and only supports local area network, that is a server-side broadcasting its screen in the background, and several other client-side are receiving the screen capture in real time.

    There is even legacy software which can be installed at remote computer to capture screenshot to AVI video continuously. The cost is large hard disk space consumption, and difficulty to playback remotely in real time.

    This is more a wishful thought: Does anyone know of such a piece of software (freeware preferred) that can achieve Remote Screen Viewing (NOT Remote Access Control)?

  11. I've reinstalled ie7, ie8, ie9; none will load even if the installation goes as far as asking to restart the pc.

    Generally, I use firefox. But there is an application that requires IE. The IE add-on doesn't help. [similarly for Chrome]

    Anti-virus is turned off and neither the 32 bit or 64 bit versions load.

    Windows XP only supports IE8, AFAIK.

  12. In Malaysia, a small country located in South East of Asia, it is common to see slogan or common sign like:

    Dilarang meludah

    It is prohibited to spit

    Dilarang membuang sampah

    It is prohibited to litter

    Other are more persuading...

    "Tak Nak" - Rokok

    Say "Don't Want" to Cigarette

    While some other are offensive. I couldn't remember the sign board that put at the junction along the highway. However, this is rare.

    I think it is very common for us to use the following anyway:

    Thank You



    and a smile. :)
