|Buh-Bye batch files. There's a new kid on the block. Well, not new, but new to you if you are not familiar with it - The Windows Script Host.
Today we'll be learning how to perform file handling, amongst other things, using the Windows Script Host/VBScript to automate the task of backing up files. We'll also learn how to launch your favorite burner and automate the task of recording a cd if you want.
I'll go into detail on the methods and properties of the FileSystemObject as well as discuss the WSH File and Folder objects and some of their methods.
When you are finished, you will be able to write a fully automated backup script and perform some useful Admin tasks.

|Right. So you like firefox. I suggest right now that, if you have not already done so, you upgrade to the newest version. Don't worry, it won't kill all your bookmarks or anything. All is OK. It will, however, kill your extensions. But that's OK, as now, the extensions are better and more complete, not to mention more stable. Here, I'll list the extensions I have chosen (after going through all of them), and explain why.|
|The last TI-83 tutorial got a lot of comments; so I have been asked to make a

|Starting with a few individual reports that the FBI was conducting raids on an Arizona school computer centre, local U.S. news sources soon discovered a more widespread event that would soon be sweeping the world. Operation Fastlink has become the biggest anti-piracy storm in history with over 120 coordinated raids conducted by law enforcement agencies from more than 10 countries. . .|

|Well, virtually everyone knows how to send an email via SMTP, the practical upshot of which is that it can be forged. But few people know how to send attatchments. The uses of this are quite vast:
"Yeah I'll send it to you, but I'll be damned if you get my email adress"
"But Miss, I sent you my project two weeks ago. Are you sure you havn't got it?"
Well plain-text is all good and fine, but for some perverse reason, people seem to respect Microsoft Word Documents more (Yeah, I know! St00pId, but try sending your teacher a project in .txt...)
Naturally this guide covers sending messages through CLOSED RELAYS, as messages from open relays really suck and are generally automatically stuffed into a junkmail folder.
|Like almost all of id Software's games, a SDK was released along with Quake 3. The SDK contains everything (including a compiler, but not an editor) that you need to start writing a mod for the game.
Note: To be able to try this out, you'll need a full version of the game. The demo doesn't allow you to run mods. You'll also need a working knowledge of C.
|Extreme activities are all the rage. It has never been more fashionable to throw yourself from a building or jump from a plane in flight. Programming is not an activity that is often linked with the term extreme, but Kent Beck's extreme programming methodology can help keep your project on-target without the needless overhead. We are about to get extreme, and you won't even need a bungee cord....|

Every person works not only for himself, also for the other members of the team. Such a real teamwork needs a technical base. I'll try to guide you through the buildprocess using Java and CVS, but you can port it to any other programming language and version-control-system as well."|

This article is meant for a starting point and does not guarantee a 100% recovery or even a recovery at all times.

|Brain***** is the product of urban mueller, who wanted to create the smallest interpreter possible for a turing-complete language, his initial release for amiga os 2.0 weighed in at 240 bytes, he has since gone below 200.|
|After reading through Pigsbig's article on Brain****, I though I'd write a followup, on the concept of a turing machine. In theory, it can solve any given equation, to an infinite amount of digits. Of course, this means that none actually exist, only emulators. Still an interesting concept.|
| mmmmmmmm…my own OS. What? Uh, sorry about that but I was dreaming again. Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to be the creator of an operating system?

|So, you've just downloaded a large pile of source, say WineX, or the Linux kernel, run ./configure, and now make depend && make. It starts compiling. And keeps compiling. And continues compiling. As anyone who has tried to build something big knows, this can take a while, especially on slow processors. Heck, even on a pentium 4 2ghz, Advanced Strategic Command (www.asc-hq.org) takes around half an hour to compile. So, what to do while you wait?|

|One thing I've noticed in working with interpreted languages over compiled languages, is the ability to re-evaluate itself, i.e. self modification. Using this, the possibilities are endless, although it often leads to obfuscation. This article is just some observations.|

|REBOL created by Carl Sassenrath, is a new handy and really multi-platforms programming language. It's a real distributed environment for computing and is about to be the language of future. You can write some handy applications in few ko and don't need translation or arrangements to use it on other OS's and can be executed remotely and having just results transfered. It speaks TCP/IP natively and interpreter is only 200 ko.Forget about Java or any complicated OOP so-called multi-platforms. REBOL is the tool of the future.|
