How can I install/use the DOS batch scripting SLEEP command with Vista Ultimate? It does not exist by default. Back while scripting on XP, I used to install the free package "Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools" which came with this command. [more inside]

How does one, in scriptwriting, correctly describe sequences in which a movie is shown (at length)?
In other words - a movie inside of a movie.

I'm looking for sources of weather data (current conditions, forecasts) that are in text formats so that I can turn them into a Twitter weather bot. What I have in mind is either existing ASCII products (METAR, AVN MOS) or derivatives of image products that (e.g. a compact text encoding of a radar map through some kind of image analysis). Ideas welcomed. [more inside]

Link to my site is available through my name, above, if that helps.

How do I stop/view a domain login script? Work uses a domain login script with kixtart (kix32.exe), that maps shares, auto software installs, etc. Back with NT4 running novell, there was a nice checkbox to step through login scripts, but I have not seen anything like that in shareware/freeware.

Script format for :30 commercials?I've been asked by a local company to write scripts based upon concepts I've given them for :30 commercial spots to air on local cable. I know it's not a big deal, but since I'm anal about proper format in general, I was wondering what the proper formatting is for this kind of script. Plus I'm simply curious. [more inside]

I'm running a PhPBB forum. Spammers have found it. Mysterious strangers selling vigorous blue pills popped up from nowhere.
Now I need to build something that will prevent spammers from polluting it. Is there a silver bullet that prevents all spammers from ever posting on PHPBB forums ? (I know, but I'm an eternal optimistic).
Any antispam mods that has been successfullyt tested someone would like to recommend ?
Thanks in adavance.
