This video - http://www.metacafe....r_with_a_cell_phone/ - reminded me of something easy.

Make outlook open automatically. Send email via phone to outlook. Outlook runs a rule on it and runs a program that can sleep the PC.

This will be fun to try :)

No I have router that has port 7 forwarded. Webpage is on my website, hidden away in folders and then the PHP script requires a password.

You could bypass that, but you'd need my mac address, which (I believe) doesn't leave the router.

Wouldn't the answer be to have two seperate include files? Something like


The company functions file(s) would contain all the code contained in your repository and you would be very very strict in ensuring that the code is read only

If you wanted to edit the code (even by one character) you would write the code into the manual function file for index.asp (in this example).

Once you edit code in the repository you would not need to do a find and replace, you could just replace the companyfunctions file as you can ensure that it will not delete any work (as it is 'read only' and you have only made the code better).

But obviously this is just an overview without really knowing much about your situation.

General Software Discussion / Turning a pc on and off remotely
« on: July 16, 2008, 03:15 AM »
I've been talking about Wake over network recently and have successfully managed to make my computer wake from sleep (but not off) via a PHP script on my webpage.

Is there a way of making the computer go to sleep via a webpage? I'm mostly thinking of using Orb via my mobile phone so won't have access to a remote desktop connection, but I could put IIS onto the computer (Vista Enterprise SP1) if IIS could shut down the computer.

Or is there just a program that could do it (that could also be placed on a phone or loaded from a webpage).

Thank you experts!

Title is 'queueing downloads in firefox' :p

I have a socket with all my computer bits on it and I turn off the power by the plug each day, but an interesting plugin nevertheless.

To pull up a slightly old thread...

I really do like Backup 4 all and purchased it at full price a while back when looking for a decent backup to a NAS.

But the software will be in Bits Du Jour on Monday 21 JUL ‘08

Download them all has proved to be brilliant. Out of the way when I don't want it and powerful when I do.

General Software Discussion / Queueing downloads in firefox
« on: July 06, 2008, 06:29 AM »
Wonder if any of you geniuses can help me.

I've been downloading a bunch of 100-200MB files off a server recently and I normally like to, because of the time involved, click on a bunch of downloads then go do something else.

What I have found though is that if I click on 10 files they will all download at an equal speed. Sometimes that means that when I leave for work in the morning I have 10 files at  90% complete and I have to cancel them all.

Is there an option or addon in firefox that could force downloading two files at a time, so that I am more likely to get complete files downloading slightly more slowly but with less chance of the download being in vain.

1) The file is probably not on the public webserver so you are probably looking in the wrong place (most places have folder on the webserver, but not in the public_html part)
2) Unless you an inject some code you won't be able to list the contents of the directory
3) If you could you are obviously trying to hack into someone elses website, so I think you'll find us ethical people wouldn't help if we could

There would be 'whizzier' ways of doing it, but would the easiest be 15 frames set to automatically progress to the next slide after 60 seconds?

137 also have a single line IP page for automation

or visiting reeeeally dubious sites,
You mean the internet has other uses? I don't think there is a 16+ male on the internet that doesn't need to delete their history once in a while.

Anywho, if it's just a couple of sites then press the down arrow on the address bar, press the down arrow on the keyboard until you get to the one you want to delete and press the delete key on the keyboard.

Does an upgrade count?

Your IP address has scored: -2. Of the 356,749 IP's spotted so far, this is ranked: 356,504


This is probably the fact that I haven't used AHK before but...

It still minimises, it is just that when it comes back up again it goes back as a restore rather than a maximised.

Script currently looks like this

#SingleInstance force
DetectHiddenWindows, On
SendMode, Input
SetTitleMatchMode, 2

Send, #d
IfWinExist, Outlook
  PostMessage, 0x112, 0xF120,,, Outlook

Possibly, but I don't really care about anything but outlook disappearing.

If it was AHK, would that mean I couldn't use Start D? I use it without thinking, that's my main problem.

General Software Discussion / Protecting windows from minimising
« on: June 24, 2008, 03:03 AM »
I hope someone can help me. I've just moved computers to one with a dual display (rather than two separate computers). On the right is outlook, on the left is everything else.

I use Start + D very often to show the desktop, but I'd like Outlook (or a blanket 'whatever is on the second monitor') to stay put. Do you know of anything like that? I'm finding it very hard to google as I can't get the keywords to pick up what I'm trying to say.

Many thanks

Should it also be turned off for quotes in case you quote a spammer?

Living Room / Re: When you make your 100'th Post
« on: June 07, 2008, 11:16 AM »
This is my 100th.

For example. We decide that is a good site and we post about it. Other forums also think that giveawayoftheday is a good site. All forums throw nofollow tags around the website and this good site doesn't get anywhere on google due to word of mouth not raising it up the ranks.

However new poster 'iamabot' comes on promoting and never posts again, he shouldn't raise up the ranks.

Surely a lot of recommended software from this forum should go up higher in search rank terms?

Can't it just be <50 or <100 posts?


The positioning thing doesn't seem to have worked well for me. It seems to have chosen the bottom left to be on my secondary monitor rather than the primary.

Is there anything I can do manually for this?

I've only used lanux's program but these seem to be two different programs.

Lanux brings up a mute message permentatly when you computer is muted, these bring up icons showing you the volume level, and when you mute it tells you but then hides.

I use mine as I mute Napster when answering the phone at work and always forget to turn it back on a few minutes later.
