I on a roll now having successfully created my first coding script. Fair enough i couldn't get my Java Script to say "Hello World" but "Hi World" is pretty impressive. Ok i am joking as to my programming/scripting skills but i am indeed relatively very new to using computers let alone coding.


Been enjoying dabbling with Batch files and created some pretty neat stuff for custom purposes. I've also put Task Scheduler to good use and am today reading up on VBScript for the first time, with which i made a nice little script that triggers Synthesized Speech alerts throughout the day to remind a forgetful relative when and which medicines to take.


Totally excluding all computer related maintenance tasks has anyone else created or got some good ideas for tasks using any combination of the three methods mentioned that make a useful contribution to daily life or interests. Ideally applications that are quite useful would be interesting to hear of and maybe the odd fun/idle pleasure one too.

Its fun isnt it, i have batch files for failed logins from external users which uses task scheduler along witht he batch file scripts to sift through the event logs and pull the text and then emails me the alerts.

i also have similar events on server shutdowns so i know how long it takes for the UPS in some branches to shutdown/battery life.
