Windows, DOS, Batch-files, Powershell, geek stuff galore...

Snick, GoogleMyDrive's college cafe's Windows & DOS sent you an invite via general email :)
You are in, as far as I know, once you accept. PaulB, we are still waiting...for your email address :)

In here - sevenforums, and in college cafe Windows & DOS, we can give helpful hints about batch-files, powershell scripts, etc., whatsoever our brains and hearts desire!

Who knows, we just might actually help somebody other than ourselves!

Have they done away with all the hoops you had to jump through to join?

I'm not familiar with GooHell Drive, but it looks like a bunch of files now rather than a website.

That is what it is, a collection of directories, with files within each directory. i plan to simply add to several existing boards and do not plan to begin another discussion board or a web site.

PaulB, Snick, I'm going to combine my Paul and Snick materials into one folder, one directory, to save space by combining like with like. One suggestion, if you have not already done so:
-- using "::" , put your name and email address at the top of each batch-file you create
-- for any config.sys or similar item, using "rem"[?], ditto name and email address
-- any EXE, DLL, COM, etc., embed name and email address
-- if you know author or authors, consider embedding their IDs within their stuff
I think it is best to simply ASCII flat text email addresses into your stuff.

If you browse my stuff in google/mydrive's geek stuff, you will see I took that advice for my concoctions.

And how should I know which files I can use if you've given most of them cryptic names? You're allowed up to 255 characters.

Example, pretend you added a batchfile from me into your geek pot publicized on sevenforums.
Your batchfiles and mine are branded with our respective names and email addresses.

I did put a special folder in Data called "PBlack + Snick" but I don't know what a geek pot is. I also have the installer for every program I run on my computers, in case I need to reinstall or set up in the next computer. As you already know, they're all free programs.

So I would have to write you and ask the name of a file I need. Why don't you just give them logical names? "Backups, Restore, Recoveries" is logical. You can have up to 255 characters for the path.
