This is today… Today I will have a chance to speak to THEM. Good day to finalize my series. Not the best day to do shopping, since my bank card expired. 😉 So no real breakfast today.
Last two events were not very hard, but I had two problems to move them to CMD.
Event 9 required array manipulation but… there is no array in CMD! So what should I do? Well, I tried to ‘pretend’ I was playing with arrays. So it’s not a script I could easily defend. Probably one star only. 😉
Second was even harder: how to debug .vbs or .ps1 when I use cmd only? I decided to take other route: OK boss, I’m not fluent in either, I will get your message box in cmd, and leave those broken scripts alone. 😉 There is no ‘silentlycontinue’ in cmd (unless you redirect 2> nul) so if I hit error – I will know it. So that’s what I came up with:
msg %USERNAME% %msg%
See? Message box as you expected. Title may be a little confusing, but who would read title in a window like that? 😉 So again: not exactly what Scripting Guys asked for, but I had to limit my self to command line tools only.
And now I have few long hours ahead. I plan to get to bed early and today (tomorrow my time) wake up in the middle of the night, drive to work (so that I would not wake up my family while recording podcast). So two big issues ahead of me: how to concentrate on what I’m doing when at work, and how to fall asleep when at home. 😉 I usually go to bed around 1-2, so it may be a real problem. So plan B is stay at home, and call podcast team from bathroom 😉 Will see how it all works out for me.
