Have we forgotten? Disregarded, maybe.

There is a lot of theology that is missing there too.

cmd.exe disabled, this! by unknownfile at 10:37 AM EDT on April 21, 2008
Windows XP has the ability to turn off the command prompt, so I whipped up a batch file to get around the restriction. It's probably been done before but I'm bloody bored at the moment, so here it is:

@echo off
echo workbench by unknownfile
echo a simple batch script to bypass shitty administrators
rem Simply switch to the user's current directory, a la cmd
chdir %USERPROFILE%
:Command_Input
echo Current directory is %CD%. Enter a commmand below:
SET /P DICKS=
%DICKS%
goto Command_Input

A small command prompt in 10 lines.
Hmm... CMD.exe by Elven Spellmaker at 12:14 PM EDT on April 21, 2008
A good Administator would stop batch files from being run on a School Network... Like ours...

The security on our network is so tough =/, I have tried to breach it many times, but with no avail, as *.exe, and *.bat are both blocked. We have a VirtualP.C. program on out School Network, with VB/PHP, on it. I can install or run anything on that, but unfortunately a Virtual P.C. cannot interact with the main P.C....

how 'bout .com, heh. .pif? whatever the shortcut extension is?
A nice feature of our school computer labs (the general Windows/Mac ones, not the Linux ones) is that there are almost no restrictions, the machine just reimages itself on boot.

RM... by Elven Spellmaker at 7:37 PM EDT on April 21, 2008
A command file would probably not run either, I think a pif is a image file?

RM resticts everything possible, although when I had a school laptop (with Privileged rights, so I could use XAMPP [PHP Stuffs]) it locked me out of the registry, and as I could run *.exe files on this laptop, I just ran AdAware SE and got rid of the registry key locking me out of the resgistry! =)

RM even restricts taskmanager and DXdiag...

As far as I am aware our P.C.s are "built" every so often and so the reimaging doesn't happen on our network...

.pif is one of the many extensions that are executable by default, if you rename a .exe to .pif it'll run. They probably thought of that on your system, though.
A Yoshi Story - a sprite visual novel by Yoshinkeru at 7:00 PM EDT on April 28, 2008
Well, since this seems to be the go-to "off-topic", I'd like to publish this here.*

I've worked long and hard on this for a while, and now I've finally completed the first part of the story.

Gentleman, ladies, behold! I give you... A Yoshi Story.

Instructions: Unzip into any directory, then run the main Yoshi_Story.exe Unlikely, but if it says it needs a certain DLL, it has been included; simply copy into your system32 folder (you'll ned administrator privileges). This was what my previous topic was about, actually.

Enjoy!

*There is one connection, and that is the use of the 64th Note plugin for some of the background musics used here.

Cool, I'll take a look.
For reference, the only place we (and by We I mean Me) frown upon off-topic is in an unrelated thread. Feel free to create a new one; though it's mostly vgm discussion here that's not a rule.

Whee, I found CHDK, a firmware enhancement for digital cameras. Been playing around with it a little, a nice feature is RAW support. Even with "Superfine" JPEG compression (which produces 5 MB-ish files) there is still a fair amount of artifacts.
Comparison (this is the same image, compressed with the highest quality that the camera provides and the RAW dump that CHDK enables):
RAW

JPEG

Particularly notable is the UPC area.
Of course it also does some processing to make it look better, but it's nice to have the raw ccd output sometimes.
